Gambelís quail (Callipepla gambelli) are less common in Texas than northern bobwhites (Colinus virginianus) and scaled quail (Callipepla squamata), but they are compelling creatures with unique adaptations that allow them to survive the harsh desert conditions in which they live. These ground-dwelling birds were discovered in the 1840s by William Gambel, a young American naturalist who loved birds and minerals (Ashworth 2017). Gambel discovered several other species to which his name is now attributed, including the dainty Mountain Chickadee (Poecile gambeli) and Gambelís oak (Quercus gambelii). Although William Gambel discovered many interesting species, researchers continue to focus on Gambelís quail and are perpetually learning more about these charismatic birds.

Cool little birds, love watching and listening to them. Sister had a place in Scottsdale and they were all over the place around there.

My folks lived in Green Valley AZ and even had them nest in their back yard. And it seemed like they were every where. Golf courses was lousy with them.
