...about this site

Colinus Virginianus. Affectionately referred to as "the prince of game birds" and occasionally "gentleman bob", the bobwhite quail has worked its way into the hearts of countless sportsmen over the last few centuries. Though known far and wide for its telltale two-tone call, it is not a songbird, and with the exception of researchers, you're not likely to find many souls peering through binoculars at this curious creature. It is a sporting bird of the highest caliber, and has created a sport in itself. Businesses, organizations and pasttimes exist solely because of this bird and would evaporate into the air we breathe without it.

This site, too, would not exist if there were no bobwhite. Not intended to be a one-stop, Wal-Mart of quail knowledge and paraphernalia, this site will hold bits and pieces of the sport that are meaningful to me. You'll find a few basic nuggets of information about the bobwhite, but most of the site will be devoted to good articles about the future of the bird, the fine dogs used in the hunt, and editorials of my own thoughts on the bobwhite and its place in our world.
