Gambel cameronrognan

A bird of the Desert Southwest, Gambel's quail (Callipepla gambelii) is common in much of the Southwest, particularly southern Arizona and New Mexico. Here they look and act very much like the more widespread California quail, but the two species' ranges do not overlap. Look for these tubby birds running between cover in suburbs and open desert or posting a lookout on low shrubs.
