Had a call from a woman in Edison who has what turns out to be a Gambel's Quail in her yard. A very handsome male bird. Obviously not native to NJ. She is concerned about it, doesn't know where it came from and who to call to come get it.
Does anyone here on the list have any ideas? Is someone in the Edison area breeding Gambel's Quail? I assume it escaped from someone/somewhere but the question is whom/where?
If you doubt the veracity of the identification, go to Wild Bird Kingdom on Facebook and you'll see the video showing the bird and it's calling.
