Hello. I stand by my id on black breasted button quail 100% The area i found 
them in had been lightly burnt through but was still very thick with vine 
cover. I saw three birds in total, two i assume were males and one female. I 
watched the two i assume were males spinning around in circles scratching in 
the undergrowth for some time wondering about the black showing on their breast 
and under belly. After about ten minutes a female stunned me by walking into 
view showing the unmistakable jet black head and mottled black and white 
breast. All three birds had pale eyes. I watched them all for quite some time 
and regardless of how unlikely this sighting apparently is i plan to tick them 
as i got a fantastic look at all three birds. I am a mad keen birder who spends 
many hours on weekends and before work birding and many hours at home studying 
birds. With that i am happy to say that this morning, Saturday the 14th of June 
there were three black-breasted button-quail sighted at the Enoggera dam 
Brisbane Queensland.
