About the grouse and quail
This order, in the US, has 22 species
in three families, Phasianidae, Odontophoridae and Cracidae.
All but two species are in the family Phasianidae. Some
species of this order were introduced
to the US from other countries such as the Ring-necked
Pheasant which is from China. The Wild Turkey which is a
native species has been introduced into additional parts of
the country as a game species. It also has been
domesticated. Different species are endangered because their
habitat is threatened such as the Greater Sage Grouse and
the Greater Prairie Chicken.
