Singing Quail (Dactylortyx thoracicus)
Singing Quail (Dactylortyx thoracicus sharpei)
New World Quail (Odontophoridae)
Calakmul ruins, Campeche (Cam), Mexico
Adult male. Small size and orange buff cheek is sex and species typic. Locally rather common, though, difficult to see, and even more so to get a decent photo of. This one plus the female were foraging along the road inside the ruin area. Perhaps only possible to experience this if you are the first visitor on site!
