Small, brownish, quail-like bird. Generally rare and elusive species that is unlikely to be seen by those not expressly looking for it. The face is orange, and in flight, a large black rump patch is obvious. Found very locally in moist grassland. Gives a long series of low “hoo” notes. Very similar to Small Buttonquail, but separated by orange face and black rump. Also similar to female quail, but differs in less explosive flight and black rump.
