Hello all
I've remarked on Red-backed and Chestnut-backed Button-quail sitting on 
roads in the Top End a number of times.  They mainly do it at night and 
in the early wet season,and driving such roads at this time is the best 
way to get a good look at them. If the birds are on the road I pick them 
up and deposit them on the verge so they won't be run over.
