A quail/button-quail is interesting. The candidate that most likes wet areas
is the Brown Quail but in these dry times who knows. If you hear it, Brown
Quail has a simple rising whistle sound, Stubble Quail a 3 note that I call
"tutch e wop" (because I learned it at Lake Tutchewop). Button-quails don't
call much.

Pied Stilt and Common Sandpiper keeping company with Pink-eared Ducks just
now.  Frustrated by the quail/button-quail which must be in the grass
nearby, but eluding me, despite several passes.
