Common Quail (Coturnix coturnix)

An extremely difficult bird to get a close look at, though its "Wet me lips" call is often heard. Hard to flush, Quail prefer to creep though the grass with a low profile or squat tightly rather than take to the air, and even when it does the latter it will seldom fly far before dropping to ground into the tallest piece of standing grass in the vicinity.
