    An unmarked male quail with a young brood is recorded feeding by the video monitored nest of a radio-collared female.

Notice at the end of the video clip the unmarked male gathers the chicks under his wings and breast. Presumably he was protecting the chicks after becoming nervous when seeing the micro-camera lens.
