Gambel's Quail are gregarious birds of the desert Southwest, where coveys gather along brushy washes and cactus-studded arroyos to feed. Males and females both sport a bobbing black topknot of feathers. The male's prominent black belly patch distinguishes it from the similar California Quail (the two species' ranges don't overlap). This ground-hugging desert dweller would rather run than fly. Look for these tubby birds running between cover or posting a lookout on low shrubs. Lots of fun to watch families of them scurry from one bush to another on the golf course.
