Mid Fall a male Bobwhite just showed up on my doorstep; I have no idea where he came from. At first I tried t catch him so I could bring him down to the vegetable farm my family owns, as we have a lot of barns, woods, and enclosed areas where he could hide and keep safe. But he's proven to be almost impossible to catch. So soon after I've given up on catching him and I started feeding him, leaving him water and he's stuck around. Several months later: it's the middle of winter here in New England and there's lots of snow and it's freezing at night. This bird doesn't have a flock, he's all alone, and I'm worried about him surviving the winter on his own. He used to go under the porch at night but now he just sits on my porch, near my door. I regularly leave him cracked corn and water. I also put a burlap sack on the ground and put alfalfa on top of that (near my wood pile because that's where he takes cover now) in hope's he can use that to get off the ground a little when he gets too cold. I guess my question is: what else can I do for this bird to make sure he gets through the next few months ok? How can I keep him warm, happy, and healthy through these hard months?
