Calling Northern Bobwhite this morning on Cottletown Rd just south of Old Antioch. This is over a mile from the ebird sighting on Old Antioch last month but it could easily be the same bird wandering along the powerline easement.
Probably pointless to speculate on origin (the species was essentially extirpated locally years ago) but it was flighty. Very few recent records in the county.
