Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Plump chickenlike bird, stout bill, dark brown overall with blacker breast and face and variable white markings on throat. The blackness of the breast should help separate from other quail. Found in small flocks, always on the ground, foraging through leaf litter in the forest. More often heard than seen: listen for the rich chuckling song, often given by multiple birds at once.
