Buff-breasted Button Quail

I was reading about the Night Parrot out of interest and found out that there is another extremely cryptic bird, the Buff-breasted Button Quail. It is now (since the Night Parrot was photographed) the only Australian bird species that hasn't been photographed. It probably hasn't got much attention as the Night Parrot because it is a more 'normal' bird, it isnt nocturnal, its not a parrot plus there has been occasional sightings of it whereas the Night Parrot was thought to be extinct. It lives in northern Queensland. It is listed as endangered. I think it is very interesting.

Is that a challenge? Surely you don't want someone to beat you to it!

Haha, I wish I could go on a trip to North Queensland and take a shot of it!
