Description: A striking denizen of open, grassy woodlands in the mountains of southeastern Arizona, the Montezuma Quail (Cyrtonyx montezumae) is extremely secretive and expertly camouflaged. It was once known as 'Fool's Quail' for its habit of crouching when alarmed. The male sports the harlequin pattern whereas females are cloaked in delicate tan and umber. This male exhibited its ability to crouch and freeze, while following the circling movement of a potential predator, until it was viewed fully from the front.
