Observation details

Wilma, and our bird guide Malcolm Gemmell, walked thru the field of short grasses for about 10 minutes before flushing 2 black-rumped buttonquails. I took 12 pictures as one flew toward me (you don't see the black rump in my pictures). The black-rump was clearly visible to Malcolm and Wilma from behind as the bird flew away from them and toward me, plus it took off without making a sound - which is typical.
