I have no idea what type of bird these two are, but I watched them strutting around for a while last week!

spotted birds

Does anyone know what they might be?

    What cute little guys. Their feathers remind me of quail, but I’ve never seen anything quite like them.

      I agree, they do look a little like quail. They’re bigger, though. Maybe some type of Hawaii quail?

    I’ve never seen these before. Pretty looking birds!

      They were brave, too! They stayed right there through a lot of human activity and cars passing by.

    Looks like some kind of quail! I’m not a bird watcher, so I maybe wrong šŸ™‚ Love those pair… remind me a doves here always in pairs!

      They do have quail-like dots, but they’re bigger than quail I’m familiar with. That was my first thought, though!

    How sweet!

    • Natashalh April 6, 2015, 16:09

      It was a fun way to pass a few minutes. =)

    Nope, no idea. But they do look a bit like quail, and are pretty cute little guys

    • Natashalh April 7, 2015, 06:20

      So, I just looked up “Hawaiian quail” and there is one, but I really don’t think these are them. They’re far more rounded and actually have fewer spots. =/

      You’re right, though, whatever else they are, they’re cute!

  • Paige April 7, 2015, 02:55

    Well, I’m seconding everybody who says they kind of look like quail. I was also going to say that the white line of feathers kind of looks like a veil, so that’s fun. šŸ™‚

    Never seen those before, but they do look fierce!

    • Natashalh April 8, 2015, 06:07

      That one just kept standing in the road as cars went by! I thought the very first car would send them flying and I’d never get a picture, but I was wrong.
