There are a few bobwhites running around here.  My wife gets a kick out of me whistling at them while I am working around the place.  Last summer I called one up to within 15 feet of us while we were sitting on the porch enjoying the sun.

Yeah, but it sure takes a lot of them to feed a guy like me. Nothing like fattening them up on corn first.

I have seen a lot of those in Odessa. Tasty is right.

Had no idea they were in WA. Planters, maybe?

If you look in the bird books, most will have a little dot of their range being about Yakima.  It isn't very big.

It helps that Big R and Yakima Co-op both sell Bobwhite chicks every spring and many of those end up in the wild somehow.  I know I've seen a few at my buddies place above where Wenas creek meets the Yakima River.
hey, where's Professor Chaos? Anyone seen him?

I am sure that helps...that and certain bird breeders might accidentally release a few. ;)
