Below is Dr. Hernandez's answer to the question.
"Yes, hybridization between blues and bobs has been reported in the literature. Their occurrence is rare but does seems to happen. Rates of occurrence of “blobs” range from 1-70 blobs for every 1,000 bobwhites sampled"
I know a guy named Jonesy. He's known in Kentucky. I was talking to him and he said he uses these birds to train with. Said they stick like bobwhites, but don't require the conditioning that bobwhite require and will get up and flush like a blue quail. Said they're great for training.

Saw a blob on the way to deer stand this afternoon. Top of body was a blue, from the wings down marks and feathers of a bobwhite. Was running along fence row and in the road with 4 other bobwhite. Ranch in Jim Hogg county. Sorry, no pics
