Do the males ever make that same "wheep wheep wheep wheep wheep" call? Or do they just do the growl with the single sounds following?

Booger just started doing this today or something very similar. It scared the bejeebers out of me because I thought she was hurt.

All buttons do the "weep weep weep weep" call. I noticed that mine only do that when they are separated or when it gets really quiet. Only the males make the "growl then one call" noise and usually it's in the morning.

Thanks for answering - s/he is a lonely only so yeah - s/he was calling for other birds.

All the youtube videos I found had female birds so that is why I was wondering.

S/he actually looks a lot like the silver red breasted female you have pictured in your button quail color guide. In the picture I posted the camera put a yellow tint on everything.

That's what the roos sound like. When I played that video, my noisiest roos had to answer

I'm going to have to boomark that one to save time beer sexing buttons. As far as color sexing buttons goes....what ever quaillady says. I'm new to cbbq's. Most of my roos are the red and blue breasted color and are no drainers to me, but I do have a few of the more complicated colors like you.
