California Quail in Borrego Springs

Here are two pictures of California Quail for you today. I've discussed before that the Anza-Borrego Desert is one of only a few areas where California and Gambel's Quail overlap and hybridize. Do you remember how to separate pure birds from hybrids? (Hint: crown, forehead, chest, breast, belly)
