This is a quail I heard in the bush behind me at Creamers'. Quail are not native to this area but this guys been seen for a couple of years now around Creamer's. It is assumed it is a domesticated bird that escaped.


He must be pretty tough to survive our winters and all the foxes and lynxes that would find him a tasty treat.


UPdate: I've been told he's not a quail but a chuckar, but he still doesn't belong here.
