Are you having a bad day? Cold got you down? Well, I've got just the thing to melt your heart and drag you out of the depths of despair. How about the tiniest bird you've ever seen playing in the palm of someone's hand, in New Milford?

This video was posted to Youtube on January 10, 2022 by Viral Hog in New Milford and by the time I saw it the next day it had over 12,000 views so this Viral Hog is well on their way.

The description of the video reads: "Occurred on November 22, 2021 / New Milford, Connecticut, USA I hatched a button quail and it imprinted on me."

If that didn't change your mood, I don't know what will. A bird that small and that friendly can steal your girl. I've never seen a bird so small so I had to learn more about the button quail and this is some of what I found out from Britannica, ever heard of it?

  • Females are much more vocal than males.
  • The Button Quail is also referred to as the Bustard Quail.
  • Females mate with multiple males in a given season and then take off to care for their eggs.
  • The incubation period is about 12-13 days.
  • Button quail grow to between 5-7 inches.
  • Button quail are from scrubby grasslands, typically in warm regions.

Boom, I cute'd you up and learned you down, you are welcome. Share this article with a friend, it will make their day and it will make my week if this short video helps me beat my friends' numbers at work.

As for Viral Hog, they don't need my help but I'll give it anyway. Their Youtube channel features an array of eclectic videos from all around the world and you guessed it, they all go viral.
