I logged on to the African birding chatline (to follow up about the solar eclipse) and came across this request for any new information on Button-quails. So I am passing on this request. Some of you may have something to add that has not already appeared in HANZAB. He is interested in more than the African species. Respond to

I am currently completing species accounts for sandgrouse (and buttonquail)
for a forthcoming gamebirds monograph in the A. & C. Black (Helm) series.
There is still time to include any items of unpublished data for these groups
in the book. Information on range, breeding biology, conservation status,
habitat use and any of the usual range of subjects covered by such works,
which updates information available in the published literature, would be of
great value to myself, Steve Madge and Phil McGowan. Needless to say all
contributions will be acknowledged in the book. Anyone with particular
knowledge of any groups/individual species who would be interested to review
any of the accounts is welcome to contact me, but please note that we are
aiming to deliver the final texts to the publisher within the next 2.5 weeks.

Thanks for your note. I am working on the Australian species too, and of
course am making extensive use of HANZAB and other recent sources. I am not a
member of the Australian list you mentioned. Should you wish to forward my
request there, with the caveats that responses should come to me and to only
bother with information that updates HANZAB (should cut down on people's
work), I would certainly be grateful.
