Boids

Quails

Not just any kind of boids. These are bob-white quail boids, specifically northern bob white quail boids. Colinus virginianus and all that. And for those who have lived their entire lives restricted to large downtown metropolitan areas, this is a male/female pair - the female on the left - rendered in pastel.

Sometimes referred to somewhat insultingly as "a small rotund" ground dwelling bird, these little beasties are immediately recognized by their characteristic call, which if you're told it sounds like "Bob-Bob-White" does indeed sound a bit like it.
