     The marbled wood quail (Odontophorus gujanensis), also known as the Amazonian wood quail, is a species of bird in the New World quail family. It is found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Panama, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.


    Adult marbled wood quails grow to a length of between 23 and 29 cm (9 and 11 in). The bill is stout and dark-coloured and the legs and feet are bluish-grey. The iris of the eye is brown and there is orange or red bare skin around the eye. The sexes are similar in appearance; the front of the crown and cheeks are reddish-brown and the dark brown, vermiculated feathers on the crown are ruffled to form a short, loose crest. The mantle and neck are greyish-brown, the back and wings are brown with black vermiculations and the rump and upper-tail coverts are indistinctly spotted with paler colour. The underparts are drab brown with some indistinct barring in buff and darker brown. Juvenile birds are similar in appearance to the adults but have reddish-orange bills and non-vermiculated, reddish-brown crests.[2] ...

     Marbled Wood-Quail (Odontophorus gujanensis)

     ... Identification & Behavior: ~27 cm (10.6 in). The Marbled Wood-Quail has a patterned plumage in shades of brown, black, and gray. The underparts appear finely barred with similar shades as upperparts. The Subspecies O. g. buckleyi (north of the Amazon) is more uniform in coloration than birds south of the Amazon, which seem to have a lighter rufous face, eyebrow, and throat. Overall, it is darker and more uniform in coloration than the similar Starred Wood-Quail. It forages on the forest floor where found in family groups.

    Status: The Marbled Wood-Quail is rare to uncommon, mostly by sound, throughout its extensive range. In Peru overlaps with Starred Wood-Quail. Not known to occur in Southeastern Peru in the Manu – Tambopata areas, or perhaps overlooked. ...

     Marbled Wood-Quail (Odontophorus gujanensis)

     ... Physical charateristics

    Birds of this species are stout, compactly built, and somewhat larger than the familiar Bob-white of North America. A formal description of its plumage is necessarily so long and intricate that it can leave no distinct picture in the reader’s mind; suffice it to say here that at a distance the bird appears to be clad in fairly bright brown, but close at hand it is seen to be beautifully variegated with browns and buffs, of .a bewildering variety of shades all exquisitely blended together, and flecked and vermiculated with black. The breast and abdomen are finely ,and irregularly barred with buff or cinnamon-brown and blackish. ...
