The Name "Barred buttonquail"
There was some good reasoning behind the name "bared buttonquail", although it is essentially wrong, as we will see later. An alternative name is "common bustard-quail", but let's stick to the most widely used name.
The generic name of the buttonquail is, as usual, derived from Latin: Coturnix = quail, shortened to Turnix for use on some species of Buttonquail. The species name, suscitator, derives from the Latin suscitare = encourage, stir up or awaken, presumably with reference to the bird's tendency not to take flight until almost trod upon.
