SPECIES INFO

The Stubble Quail, Coturnix pectoralis is an Australian quail of the family Phasianidae. It is sometimes considered to be conspecific with the extinct New Zealand Quail. In this case, the latter species' name would have priority and the Stubble Quail would become Coturnix novaezelandiae pectoralis.

This species is found across much of eastern, south-eastern and south-western Australia and Tasmania. It inhabits agricultural areas, wet grasslands, coastal heaths, roadsides and neglected pastures. Its conservation status is considered to be of Least Concern.
