Quails have their own home security system. It works on a proximity fuse with a mighty short countdown as they sack out in a covey-dovey of sentries - tails together, heads out, all systems GO. One step too close and it's cardiac arrest as the bob-white bomb explodes in a nerve-shattering whirring-blurring of wings, rocketing into orbits around all the points of the compass. Many a menace is outfoxed by the blitz of their blastoff. It's enough to make the stoutest heart quail.
