Spotted Quail

I spotted a Quail in my yard the other day. I just love watching them skitter across the yard always on the look out for my cat!

Today’s weird bird resembles a Quail:

Perhaps it is a Spotted Quail?

Did you know the little apostrophe on top of both male and female‘s heads is called a plume or topknot? The male’s plume is more pronounced.

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! πŸ™‚
