A specimen of this bird was exhibited, which was shot at Tabor, Iowa, May 20, 1889. The occurrence of this species, which ranges from Texas southward, was connected with the mildness of the past winter, and the great reduction in numbers of the common quail, in southwestern Iowa for the last few years.
