Quail

The quail is a ground bird and is very difficult to see because it prefers dense cover and runs away rather than flying. The quail feeds mainly on seeds and invertebrates.

The quail is red-listed in Ireland due to its small and local breeding population. The European population has been evaluated as depleted.
