A chubby, robin-sized bird, the Northern Bobwhite runs along the ground in groups and is found in grasslands mixed with shrubs or widely spaced trees throughout much of the Eastern United States. One of Audubon's Common Birds in Decline, the number of Northern Bobwhites has plummeted more than 80 percent since 1967.
The Northern Bobwhite has been used extensively for nearly 80 years in laboratory research to study the behavioral and physiological effects of pesticides on wildlife.
