Quail – Coturnix coturnix
The Common Quail is a small type of bird in the pheasant family. It is widespread the world over, and is native to Europe, Asia, and Africa. In some parts of the world, they are bred for their meat and eggs.
Common Quails are small, rotund birds. They are characterized by their brown feathers and white streaks. Evolutionarily, they are migratory birds, and therefore they have long wings, unlike typical game birds.
