Observation details

Recording to be uploaded by Dan Lane. After trying playback at various points along the edge of the clearcut, we finally had a bird respond at the very northern sliver of the clearcut, due E of the Northeast High School. After some back-and-forth, we finally triangulated the bird's location to roughly this point north-south (30.701327, -91.006489). However, much to our surprise, the bird was calling from the "wrong" side of the road and appeared to be embedded within one of the properties along the east side of the road. Thus, it is possible that the bird wasn't wild and free-flying (although perhaps few, if any, local bobwhite would truly fit that criterion), although we had no direct evidence of foul play either. So we chose to take a 'innocent until proven guilty' approach, especially in light of the fact that a "wild" bird was calling from the opposite side of the road in July 2020 (https://ebird.org/checklist/S71507527).
