This is not the first Painted Button-quail I have heard that have been found
in urban areas. There has been some reports of birds found in inner Sydney,
dead/alive. Even though some birds may have been aviary escapees, could it
be possible they are wild birds moving between areas? Has there been any
studies of Painted Button-quail movements? Are they primarily resident
and/or nomadic? I have found Painted Button-quails at Mitchell Park (Cattai)
aswell as other places around Sydney, from mid Winter to mid Summer.
