One of the most sought after quail in North America is the Mearns quail. It sometimes is confused with another popular quail also sometimes called the Harlequin. The African Harlequin is not the Mearns Harlequin. The African Harlequin comes from South Africa while the Mearns comes from the southern United States and Mexico.

The confusing factor is that the Mearns has many names. It is called the Harlequin quail, Black quail, Cincoreal quail, Codorniz Encinara, Codorniz Pinta, crazy quail, Mearns quail, painted quail and many more.

Mearns are the most unusual of the New World quail. They look like a committee put them together, as they are out of proportion when compared to any other quail. Their heads are extra large, and their eyes are big and compelling when they give you their famous 'melt your heart stare'.
