    Quote:Lol, I also feel that, but many already exist in Europe (note that many of them have a youtube link where you can see them in private collections).

    Quote:Ok, but first an important note to moderators - some of these birds are not Quail, but many are Quail, and other are defined as Quail or Partridge depending on the source, so considering this I putted this on the quail folder in the forum, also I knew that most of the people who is interested in the subject attends the quail folder. Thanks

    So, #6 - Chinese Bamboo (I think these exist in U.S.)
    - Mating Dance
    [​IMG]

    #7 - Barbary

    [​IMG]

    #8 - Jungle Bush Quail
    [​IMG]

    #9 - Painted Bush Quail (female and male)
    [​IMG]

    #10 - Sand Partridge
    [​IMG]

    #11 - See-see Partridge
    [​IMG]

    #12 - Crested Wood-partridge (male and female, this are easy to get in U.S.)

    [​IMG]

    #13 - Madagascar Partridge
    [​IMG]

    #14 - Tibetan
    [​IMG]

    #15 - Snow Partridge
    [​IMG]

    Now, two bonus birds, that are neither quail nor partridge, but are both very beautiful in my opinion, both exist in the U.S., the first actually exist in wild population that can sustain hunting.

    #16 - Himalayan Snowcock
    [​IMG]

    #17 - Black Francolin

    Quote:These are not hybrids, each one is a diferent species.
    Hill quails/partridges are mainly from Asia/Oceania.
    Alectoris family partridges (chukar, red-legged, barbary, philby's, etc.) are mainly from Europe and one or two species are from Asia.
