Masked bobwhite (Colinus virginianus ridgwayi)
Where Listed: WHEREVER FOUND
The adult male masked bobwhite has a rich rufous-red (cinnamon) breast and a black head and throat. Some males have a white to yellowish-white superciliary stripe and sometimes touches of white elsewhere on the head. They have crowns mottled with black and rufous. The head plumage tends to become purer black with age. The back feathers are a maze of blacks, browns, rufous and buff, somewhat similar to the back patterns of other bobwhite races. The female plumage is mottled brown, buff and white with a buff throat and superciliary stripe very similar to females of other bobwhite races. It is particularly like the female of C. v. texanus. Female masked bobwhite superficially resemble female and juvenile Montezuma quail, Cyrtonyx montezumae, giving rise to the frequent misidentification of the latter for the former. This fact tends to explain the numerous reports of "bobwhite"
