Well, not exactly four quail. Actually two quail, a partridge and a grouse but “Quattro Quail” sounded much better for a title. These pages did begin with a quail though with a visit to the Olbrich Botanical Gardens in Madison, Wisconsin. The tropical conservatory has little families of common and button or painted quail living amongst the ground layer. I was able to spy one of them eating for a brief time – a matter of minutes – before he or she scurried under the brush. The rest of the three similar game birds were from the Dover book.
