Elegant Quail

Callipepla douglasii

Scientific Information

Other Names: Benson Quail, Crested Quail, Douglas Quail, Yaqui Quail.

Subspecies: C. d. douglasii, C. d. bensoni, C. d. teres, C. d. impedita and C. d. languens. It is unknown the race that is seen in captivity. My best guess would be douglasii and bensoni and I'm sure that they have been interbred.

Range: Western Mexico

Habitat: Arid scrublands.

Status in Wild: Not well known.
