Male of European quail (Coturnix coturnix) from November 2015.

I share with you a few pictures I just found back on my computer of a male of European quail acquired by my good friend, the Belgian judge of ornithology Jean-Paul DAMOISEAU, in November 2015.
This birds was one of my very first animals of this wonderful species and significantly contributed to the developing of the nice bloodlines I now have.
Already at that time, it was not very easy to find and to obtain good animals: pure and small-sized. It is certainly a blessing to have had this friend, this great connoisseur, to give me birds of his breeding which allowed me to move forward.
This male was pictured on November 02th, 2015. Enjoy!
