Masked Bobwhite
Colinus virginianus ridgewayi

The adult male masked bobwhite has a deep cinnamon colored breast and a black head and throat. Some may have a white stripe traveling from the eye down to the neck and other varying patches of white on the head and throat. The males have crown feathers that darken with age. The rest of the plumage is an array of black, brown, cinnamon, white, and buff feathers in a pattern similar to other bobwhite species. The female bobwhite has plumage that is mottled brown, black, and white, with a pale cinnamon colored throat. The masked bobwhite inhabits savannah grasslands, where grass and shrubs provide sufficient ground cover.
