Squeezing this in...linking up with Kim's Friday Finds!
A walk in the Springfield Bog yesterday awarded me handsomely.
This Northern Bobwhite is a rare sighting in northern Ohio...and when one is suspected, they can be very elusive! They have a very distinct call, "Bob-bob-white!" You can hear it here:
Unfortunately their numbers have drastically declined due to loss of habitat. I'm so thankful that someone did not allow this bog to be developed and it was purchased by our metro park system.
I feel even more blessed to have had such amazing, close ups of this little gem and hearing it call back and forth to a female!
HIGHLIGHT OF MY WEEK!
