    Its the one with white on top is probably a cotton-top- (cause its got white on top) which is otherwise known as the scaled quail.

    how old is the one in the photo???? I'm guessing by feather patterns its harlequin quail- but the person who soled it could be wrong- the bird could also be a bobwhite.

    Because its to young i cannot fully identify it by its plumage, also the red glare isn't allowing me to see the true color of the plumage, also the bird is juvenile so feathers that help in identification are not there.

    but I'd say its a harlequin quail.

    This is probably what is commonly called a Tuxedo Coturnix Quail.
