Brown Quail at last

I was watching Rainbow Lorikeets, Scaly-breasted Lorikeets and Spangled Drongos in the vegetation at the caravan park behind the dunes at Emerald Beach. I glanced at the ground, and looked again. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. Seven Brown Quail pecking around near my feet. I'd never seen one before and now I had a feast.

Eventually I remembered that I had a camera in my hand and took a couple of very ordinary photos, but at least it's evidence. When I went back after checking my bird book to confirm my ID I couldn't find any. Sadly we had to pack up and leave but I'm betting they'll be out and about tomorrow morning.
