    as I was sitting out back, I heard bob whites singing. Do both sexes sing?

    The classic "Buh bob WHITE!" call is pure male, calling for a female. However, the female does a different kind of call that I can't explain in words... [​IMG]
    How cool to hear them in the wild... we don't have them here as a native species. We can raise them, but cannot let them loose. I try to make their pen as habitat-friendly as possible because of it. [​IMG]
