MONTEZUMA QUAIL (Cyrtonyx montezumae) - found across Mexico and marginally into the southern United States in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas in oak savannas, pine-oak woodlands, scrublands and mixed conifer woodlands. They forage on the ground, digging for bulbs or succulent forbs and sedges, and picking seeds, acorns, fruits and some insects. They nest on the ground, in a structure woven with grass placed under cover. There the female lays 6-12 chalky white eggs.
