Northern Bobwhite
(Quail)

Northern bobwhites breed across the state of Mississippi. Confirmations are difficult unless the young are seen or found with the parents. Probables are much easier since this species is easy to place on territory. Also, the adults have a gathering whistle they use to call the brood back together or to attract a mate, providing an easy way to pair bobwhites.
