Hi everyone,

Was out in Centennial Park, Sydney, this morning, and came across a bird I
haven't been able to identify after I accidentally flushed around six or
seven of them from some long grass. I only got a few seconds' look at them
(and hastily snapped a couple of very grainy photos) before they disappeared
into long grass again a few seconds later. They were plump, smallish (around
20cm), and I though they might be some kind of quail, but I'm not sure? If
anyone could please help with identifying them, I'd really appreciate it.
