Information about Blue Quail:
Scaled Quail commonly referred to as blue quail refer to its scale-like appearance of the breast feathers and dark brown belly feathers. Blue Quail are generally bluish gray-brown in color with a white crest and a scale -like feather pattern on their breast. Males and females are easily identified by the males having a cream-colored throat and several brown lines running up the throat and the topknot is slightly larger in the males. Blue quail have been known to drive pointing dogs crazy with their ability to run great distances. We combat that by having ample cover or vegetation to hold the birds. Also we break the covies and then hunt singles with the pointing dogs.
