Moreover, other subspecies of the Common Button quail are widely distributed in Africa south of the Sahara and Asia. Note also that the Slender-billed Curlew (Numerous tenuirostris) is not taken into consideration because it’s still officially classified as ‘Critically Endangered’ but not ‘Extinct’.
During the last two decades, exhaustive searches were carried out in Andalusia in the hope of finding the species. These searches were carried out mainly by scientists of the Donna Biological Station in collaboration with the Regional Government of Andalusia, but also by volunteers and small local Dogs such as Coin (Collective Ornithologist Iguana Negro) for example.
The expected outcome of these unsuccessful searches is that a decision has to be taken at the regional and central level to declare the extinction of the species. Last August, the Ministry for the Ecological Transition of the Spanish Government approval and published in the Official State Gazette a list of extinct species in Spain.
This list of about 30 species of different life branches included 8 bird species: Hazel Grouse (Titrates bonsai), Black Grouse (Lycurgus Tetris), Rock Partridge (Electors Greece), Mademoiselle Crane (Anthropoids Virgo), Andalusian Button quail, plus the breeding populations of Common Crane (Grus), White-tailed Eagle (Haliaeetus Alicia) and Manner Falcon (Falcon tiramisus). To the contrary, the species included in this list are considered eligible to benefice from reintroduction projects authorized by the competent administrations.
Regarding the Andalusian Button quail, any future reintroduction of the species into Spain must be from the Mediterranean population which is currently only present in Morocco. I understand that an earlier suggestion to introduce the species from sub-Saharan Africa (Pretold et al.
A detailed survey in June 2014 (in which I took part) found that the situation has worsened since the last census carried out some years earlier (unpublished data). Nest and eggs of the Andalusian Button quail, Douala region, Morocco, June 2014 (Mohamed American).
Excrement of the Andalusian Button quail, Douala region, Morocco, June 2014 (Mohamed American). Scientific classification Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Ave's Order: Charadriiformes Family: Turnicidae Genus: Turnip Species: Binomial name Turnip sylvaticus Synonyms The common button quail, Hurricane button quail, small button quail, or Andalusian episode (Turnip sylvaticus) is a button quail, one of a small family of birds which resemble, but are unrelated to, the true quails.
This species is resident from southern Spain and Africa through India and tropical Asia to Indonesia. It is a small, 15 cm (5.9 in) long drab running bird, which avoids flying.
It inhabits warm grasslands or scrub jungle and feeds on insects and seeds. This species avoids thick forest and hilly country, and lives by preference in cornfields and stretches of grassy plain though it may also be found in any type of low herbage and open scrub jungle.
When flushed it flies low over the ground and soon settles again, after which it is very difficult to put up a second time. It has streaked sandy brown upper parts, buff underparts with black flank markings, and a plain face.
South Africa, Kruger National Park South Africa, Ithaca Game Reserve female initiates courtship and builds the ground nest. The male incubates the normally four speckled grayish eggs, and tends the young, which can run as soon as they are hatched.
Widespread throughout its large range, the small button quail is evaluated as least concern on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. However, the nominate subspecies which is distributed in the Mediterranean region is critically endangered.
It disappeared from most of its range during the 20th century and is currently only present in Morocco after Spain officially declared the extinction of the species in 2018. This makes it the first bird species to become extinct in Europe since the Great Auk in 1852.

Le Turnip d’Andalusia observe en Algeria pour la premiere foil acres one absence d’observations verifies pendant Pres DE trios decencies. After it went extinct in Southern Europe, the Andalusian Button quail is now restricted to Northwest Africa.
Although the species has not been recorded in Algeria since early 1990s, it has never been declared extinct as some wrongly assumed. Mousse Gouache who shot the bird was hunting the Common Quail, a species that superficially resemble the Button quail.
Although some commenters focused on the negative side (i.e. hunting a rare and endangered species), the majority focused on the positive side of the story and thanked the hunter for photographing the bird and sharing his observation. This is yet another example why declaring the local extinction of a given species in a given region solely based on “expert opinions” is very bad.
While the quail -plover is thought to be monogamous, Turnip button quails are sequentially polyandrous ; both sexes cooperate in building a nest in the earth, but normally only the male incubates the eggs and tends the young, while the female may go on to mate with other males. The button quails in the genus Turnip ranges from 12 to 23 cm (4.7–9.1 in) in length and weigh between 30 and 130 g (1.1–4.6 oz).
They superficially resemble the true quails of the genus Coterie, but differ from them in lacking a hind toe and a crop. The females of this family also possess a unique vocal organ created by an enlarged trachea and inflatable bulb in the esophagus, which they used to produce a booming call.

Araucanía chickens originate from South America and are named after the Arabia Indians of Chile.
They do not have wattles and the facial feathers are thick with a small crest on the head. They are short, rounded birds with an upright stance and a broad skull.
They have an unusual wart-like feature on either side of their heads called place where the earlobes are usually seen. They don\'t mind being kept in a pen but like fresh grass so the coop or ark will need moving on regularly.

Now, take that concept and bring it to the kitchen, and you’ve got one of the most adventurous ways of preparing food: registration. It was brought to international fame by NFL commentator John Madden who would award this mammoth dish to the winning team during the Thanksgiving football game.
Here are 12 other bizarre and extreme examples of registration that may or may not inspire ideas for your next Christmas feast. The French have perfected the tedious technique of stuffing force meats and other ingredients into the thighs of birds such as chicken, duck or turkey.
The resulting masterpiece is rolled into a small log, and stitched together using kitchen twine. The Tudors were a Welsh house of nobility (also the titular characters in a risqué epic series starring Margery Tyrell and Superman) who liked to throw grand parties and banquets just because they could.
A traditional Tudor Christmas feast would not be complete without the Christmas pie, a multi-bird roast of pheasants, partridge, goose, chicken, and turkey cooked in a pastry crust decorated with intricate designs. The monarchs during the Tudor period staged Bacchanalian feasts with the food itself providing the entertainment.
One historical account also mentioned a pie large enough for a dwarf in full armor to spring out of. Still on the subject of medieval excess, the rich and powerful during the era of jousting and chastity belts habitually threw parties that would make Jean Naples’s debut look like a birthday party at McDonald’s.
Cooks went as far as creating hybrid creatures out of their food by sewing together different animals. The combination of a castrated rooster (capon) and a small pig resulted with the Frankenstein dish known as the cockatrice.
The beast is also stuffed with all sorts of ingredients such as pine nuts, bread, saffron, eggs, liver and spices. Just when you thought nothing could be more ridiculous than creating monsters out of poultry, here comes the True Love Roast.
Apparently, this thing is so heavy that it takes two hulking, greased-up muscle men to lift. Poussin and guinea fowl layered with parsley, lemon and thyme.
“…a mustard stuffed with a turkey, a goose, a pheasant, a chicken, a duck, a guinea fowl, a teal, a woodcock, a partridge, a plover, a lapwing, a quail, a thrush, a lark, an Ottoman bunting and a garden warbler. Every Filipino handgun is made more special by the presence of the crispy-skinned, tender broiled, and gorgeously browned lech on baby.
Lech on manor, on the other hand, is the staple emergency salo food that you can easily purchase from a roadside stall or the supermarket when you underestimate the number of guests arriving for dinner. Some local lecherous, such as Leonardo’s in San Juan, have come up with the brilliant idea of combining the two.
The lech on baby cavity is often stuffed with lemon grass and other aromatics, but this innovative concept makes use of the longer cooking time to create fork-tender chicken that is seeped in the juices of the flavorful pork belly. Moving on to much larger animals, a recipe from the Anonymous Andalusian Cookbook of the 13th Century calls for “many plump chickens, pigeons, doves and other small birds,” cooking them separately, stuffing them with breadcrumbs, quail eggs, spices, and egg yolks, and then the stuffing the birds into a skinned fattened ram.
This recipe is for what the Guinness Book of World Records hailed as “the largest item on any menu in the world.” The stuffed whole camel is apparently served at the weddings of sheikhs and their family members. Grimed de la Ranger was wrong, this is the true ROTC sans Paris.
Easily one of the most repulsive food items in the entire galaxy is the Vivian. Around 500 of the birds are stuffed to ferment inside the seal whole, feathers and beaks included.
