After doing a bit of searching on Google I found a bird called a Northern Bobwhite or
Virginia Quail, which is native to the Eastern USA,Mexico & the Caribbean.After seeing
pictures of the male bird, in my opinion its a dead ringer for the one seen today in our
neighbours garden.They are apparently a domesticated bird but this does not explain fully
how it has ended up in Cullingworth.
Try Google Northern Bobwhite & see if you agree on the species, here are a few more pics.
