The elusive Coyote's territorial song often interrupts the night silence at Quailway Cottage.

Other popular visitors include a band of Javelinas (Collared Peccaries) that enjoy eating the many pecans and apples that have fallen from the orchard trees. Jack Rabbits and Cottontails are also frequently seen.

In 1999 the University of Kansas conducted comprehensive research at Quailway Cottage of the Horned Lizards, or "Horned Toads." This included equipping them with radio transmitters enabling their movements to be followed on a daily basis.
