I love many things about Cades Cove. A long list for sure. One thing I love is the sound of the Bob White Quail in the fields and meadows. I have caught a glimpse or two of them over the years, but never an opportunity for a photo, ever. They are very shy and usually stay down in the tall grass. The other day, as I walked around in the fields off of Hyatt Ln. I heard two of them calling back and forth. I was able to zone in on one of those and found him sitting low on a tree branch.
Quail- we used to call them bob whites, after the way their call sounds

quail / TO ATTRACT ME TO YOUR HABITAT: Plant Black Locust Tree, Crown Vetch Groundcover, Prairie Dropseed, and Hot peppers ( I like the seeds). EXTRA TREATS: Acorn nuts and Sunflower seeds.
Newest members of the farm look just like this! They are really cool.
Bobwhite Quail - a beautiful bird that reminds me of a beautiful man I miss very much
I hope to improve the habitat for Bobwhites that exists on our land. I love to watch them.
