Like Richard I recall only too well searching for several days (with Pete
Milburn) over the hill slopes around Julatten (about 10 years ago from
memory) flushing Painted, more Painted and then Brown Quail followed by more
Painted until finally we began to flush a few Buff-breasted. Being so large
they were relatively easy to identify. For a while we began to doubt they
existed at all in the area.   

Interestingly, each of the birds that we saw were flushed from rocky areas
at the base of the slopes, it appearing as though they had a little niche to
themselves at the base of hill slopes and like Richard said were not seen
until they were flushed.
