Special thanks to keramikos for IDing this item. I got this one wrong. These are red-legged quail which are native to Europe. Mostly England and France. There apparently is no sexual dimorphism for these birds which means the males and females look alike. That is a trait not shared by most quail type birds. Looks like I posted this at the right time. Pair tree and all that.
Buying used taxidermy is much less expensive than having it done. Generally as soon as the owner dies it ends up out in the yard for $10. I think I paid $70 for this.
Coming tomorrow will be rare brown Jamie West figure so stay tuned. Or perhaps the next night.
