A visitor to TheGreatWall….

No,not the ever delightful Miss Emma.
After our trip to Sanibel Island,she is now busy with swimming lessons.
Nope….it is a juvenile Northern Bobwhite!’…
There I sat,
on the lanai.
Sipping a glass of Cabernet,
enjoying the evening….
…it’s been hot all day and finally the breeze kicked in…
and who should come strolling by?

This guy/gal!
male/female?
How do you tell?
A juvenile Northern Bobwhite!

After the usual Google images check,and checking my National Audubon Society Field Guide to Birds,I realized how special this is.Their numbers have been dwindling due to loss of habitat.

So when someone says my garden is a jungle,they can just shut up!

I’m feeling happy!

  1. Great photos! Wow! That was a nice surprise. Maybe there is a nest around your place.

  2. Sue-I’ve been thinking just that.I certainly hope so.I shall be on the look out from now on.

  3. That is so neat! Many, many years ago when the road out front was just two lanes, no street lights, we would hear the bobwhites at night and I always thought it comforting and exciting at the same time. My dear husband knew of them from when he was a boy, and told me what they were the first time I heard them. Thanks for the memory.

    They are pretty birds.

    Have a great 4th ~ FlowerLady
