[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On the way out of Zealandia Sanctuary at Wellington,
i came across this tiny birds walking in the grass.

Worrying that walking closer will scare it away, i squat down and zoom.

However, i do not know what is the name of this bird as it is not part of birds listed in Zealandia Sanctuary.

Kia ora Chian,
You have a nice sharp photo here. However the you won't find the bird in the Zealandia list as it is a male California quail, introduced to NZ from USA in the 19th century and are quite common. They are notoriously difficult to get close enough to get a good picture, so you did the right thing. Cheers, Neil
