    Barred buttonquail (Turnix suscitator)


    Barred buttonquail (Turnix suscitator) by alabang, on Flickr


    A typical Barred buttonquail or common bustard-quail (Turnix suscitator), rufous-brown above, rusty and buff below. Chin, throat and breast closely barred with black. Female larger and more richly coloured, with throat and middle of breast black. The blue-grey bill and legs, and yellowish white eyes are diagnostic, as are also the pale buff shoulder-patches on the wings when in flight. Absence of hind toe distinguishes Bustard and Button quails from true quails. Pairs, in scrub and grassland.


    Unlike other buttonquail, are not as difficult to see, since it tends to cross, or run along, savannah tracks, and is readily viewed from a vehicle.
    Feeds on insects and seeds, and is reluctant to fly.


    The calls are a motorcycle-like drr-r-r-r-r-r and a loud hoon- hoon-hoon.
