Observation details

Male. Reported from last week. Quails are very rare in Mangalore. This is the second quail reported from Mangalore after Barred Buttonquail. And this has not been reported from South India for a very long time. Quails are usually very shy but this was a bold one. Only this one male individual is seen. We observed for more than 15 minutes. iNaturalist link: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/22132158
