The California Quail (or simply just Quail) is a species of animal found in Red Dead Redemption 2.
Quail are small, agile birds which are mostly terrestrial, but can fly when spooked, similar to turkeys. They make slight coo sounds when they have not noticed the player.
Quail can be found in and around Strawberry in Big Valley, with populations stretching to the northwest toward Mount Shann, southeast toward the Upper Montana River, and northeast toward Carmody Dell into The Heartlands. The easiest spawn for quail is Lone Mule Stead, near Bard's Crossing.
