    I have heard that only male buttons make the "Darth Vader" growling sound, and it is done when they want a mate. Is this true, or can both sexes do this? Thank you!!

    Yes, only males. If you have any trouble discerning the male's 'crow' you can check out the "Do's and Don'ts of Button Quail" sticky at the top of the Quail forum, there are links to Youtube videos on that thread [​IMG]
