TODAY I WAS RIDING AROUND WITH MY BF AND WE SAW THIS WEIRD LOOKING BIRD. IVE TRIED AND TRIED TO IDENTIFY IT USING GOOGLE ITS NOT EVEN ON THE LIST OF BIRDS FOUND IN NC. ID REALLY LIKE TO KNOW WHAT IT WAS I DONT HAVE A PICTURE BUT HERES THE DESCRIPTION:


BIRD WAS SPOTTED IN CHARLOTTE NC (MID WINTER)
IT WAS GREY WITH WHITE SPECKLES, BLACK THOAT, WITH A LITTLE ON THE CHIN(I BELIEVE IT HAD ONE OF THOSE THINGS LIKE A TURKEY) THE FACE WAS WHITE WITH BLACK LITTLE ROUND EYES IT STOOD UPRIGHT (IT HONESTLY ME IN THE MIND FRAME OF A PEACOCK WITHOUT THE FAN)

it is truly bothering me that i can not identify this bird ive never had this problem before but i MUST know what it is

Hi Cherry, I think you may have seen some variety of quail or bobwhite. Your description fits a male California Quail.
