Extremely elusive, cryptic buttonquail with a heavy bill, restricted to dry eucalypt habitats of northeastern Queensland. One of Australia’s least-known bird species, and there are no photographs of the species in the wild. Large size should help differentiate from Red-backed and Red-chested Buttonquails. Painted Buttonquail is more heavily marked, with red eye and thinner bill.
