Quail


We saw this quail on a walk in Queenstown, Labour Weekend 2011. It was strange to see what I thought was a ground-loving bird, fly up into a tree


where it posed & perched long enough for me to take its photo.

A quick research leads me to the conclusion that the quail above is a Californian quail.

New Zealand quail (called koreke by Maori) became extinct in 1875.
