Saw this quail pair in the botanical gardens today near a nest and can't work out what type of quail they are.. Any help much appreciated!

  • Hi Millie

    It's not a bird I'm familiar with but I suspect it's an exotic species of some sort. The best I can come up with is Buttonquail. These are unrelated to the normal quail family and I believe are often bred for pets. Some of the images in the above link look similar but I leave it to you to judge. Hopefully, someone will have better knowledge than me.
