Northern Bobwhite Colinus virginianus

Introduced from eastern United States. Typically found in open shrublands and grassy habitats. Individual birds escaped from captivity or released by hunters may be encountered nearly anywhere. Only Washington populations generally considered securely established inhabit prairie landscapes of Pierce and Thurston Counties. Reports in recent years of calling birds in Soos Creek–Lake Wilderness area, including three BBA records in 1990 and 1996, may indicate small, self-sustaining population in southwestern King County.
