Scaled Quail are also referred to as cotton top quail, scalies or blue quail. The scaled quail prefers to escape on foot, and when flushed does not fly far. Eastern Colorado and southwestern Kansas mark the northern limit of its range, which also includes the Oklahoma panhandle, Texas, and most of New Mexico and Arizona. Scaled quail habitat typically consists of arid country with sparse grasslands. Sexes similar looking. No plume, instead a white topped crest extending from mid-head to rear of head and beyond on both sexes. The color is grayish black with scaled undersides. There are reports of scaled quail cross breeding with bobwhite quail in Texas and other area.
