Bobwhites get their name from their "Bob-white" call. Males and females are marked similarly, but the males have a striking white-and-black mask, while the females have a yellowish, buff-colored mask.
Although the species is in general decline in Arkansas, it once was near the top of hunted game in the state. Many AGFC programs are focused on bringing back the bobwhite, including grants and habitat projects to restore the edge habitat they require.
