trundling bird

At the Butterfly Place in Westford, numerous little birds walked around the floor. We were told they were some kind of quail. They looked comical, with plump round bodies and short legs. They actually trundled about, rather than scampered.

    So funny ! Not particularly streamlined is he? Must be an effort to propel that plump little body into the air...

    What a cute little fluff-ball! And as jillclardy pointed-out, this little quail doesn't seem to be well-designed for flying (:

    There are quails at our local butterfly place too. They are ridiculous but wonderful.
