A small-sized quail, similar in size to a Jungle Bush Quail. Unlike the Jungle Bush Quail, Rain Quail have streaks along the breast. The male Rain Quail has two distinct black bands on the neck region and white eyebrows. The female is duller in appearance with a whitish to buff neck, lacking the male’s black band markings on the neck. The Rain Quail is mainly found in grassland habitat and is more often heard than seen, especially during the months of monsoon. The male has a very distinctive and unmistakable “whit-whit” call, repeated every few seconds during the morning and evening.
