Old school Easter eggs.
ISLAM (Qur'an)
From the Qur'an. [2:57] We shaded you with clouds (in Sinai), and sent down to you manna and quails: "Eat from the good things we provided for you." They did not hurt us (by rebelling); they only hurt their own souls. [7:160] We divided them into twelve tribal communities, and we inspired Moses when his people asked him for water: "Strike the rock with your staff," whereupon twelve springs gushed out there from. Thus, each community knew its water. And we shaded them with clouds, and sent down to them manna and quails: "Eat from the good things we provided for you." It is not us that they wronged; it is they who wronged their own souls. [20:80] O Children of Israel, we delivered you from your enemy, summoned you to the right side of Mount Sinai, and we sent down to you manna and quails
CHRISTIANITY(BIBLE)
From the Bible Num 11:31-35 Now the LORD sent a wind that brought quail from the sea and let them fall into the camp and all around it! For many miles in every direction from the camp there were quail flying about three feet above the ground. 32 So the people went out and caught quail all that day and throughout the night and all the next day, too. No one gathered less than fifty bushels! They spread the quail out all over the camp. 33 But while they were still eating the meat, the anger of the LORD blazed against the people, and he caused a severe plague to break out among them. 34 So that place was called Kibroth- hattaavah — "the graves of craving" — because they buried the people there who had craved meat from Egypt. 35 From there the Israelites traveled to Hazeroth, where they stayed for some time.
PALESTINE
In Palestine, the quail is a migrating bird that arrives in droves along the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. With their strong flying muscles, these birds can fly rapidly for a short time. When migrating, however, they stretch their wings and allow the wind to bear them along. Sometimes they reach land so exhausted after their long flight that they can be caught by hand. Most of the time quail remain on the ground, scratching for food andhelping farmers by eating insects. Their brown- speckled bodies are inconspicuous, but they often give away their presence by a shrill whistle. The Hebrew people probably ate dried, salted quail while they were enslaved by the Egyptians. When they longed for meat in the Sinai desert, God promised He would provide enough meat for a month. Then He directed thousands of quail to their camp, where the birds dropped in exhaustion(Num 11:31-34; Ex 16:13; Ps 105:40).
