Possible quail report from Kachina Village
I received this email from Tracey Hall on 5/12/11:

Hey Zack, I've got a question for you. I saw a bird walking through our backyard yesturday out here in Kachina Village. It may have been a Montezuma Quail according to my field guide. Do they live this far north or do you think it was something else?

I asked her for further details to post and received this today:

Zack, My little friend who took me quite by surprise had no head gear (plume), was as plump as a nerf football and had a jaunty gait. I just happened to look out the back window while folding laundry. My binoculars were not in hand, nor my guidebook, so I am not 100% sure it was a Montezuma Quail but nothing else in my book looks like the bird I saw. I saw a similar bird last summer in the middle of our street kinda hunkered down. I stopped the car and she went into the brush and down the ravine. Both sightings were on Kweo Tr. (off of Kona) and in the vicinity of where the road loops back on itself. Feel free to share this on the site if you'd like. My home number is 928-213-9311.

Or something someone turned loose like a Bobwhite or a Chukar?
