It's normal for quail to call out to each other. Are they in a cage together? If not, the male calls for the female. If they are together and he calls anyway, try to give them a night light. If it's completely dark he might want to call her.... I have a normal small night light in my aviary, just enough to provide a little light for them. (If it's too bright they wouldn't sleep, so make sure it's really just a night light. I've also heard of people using a small string of christmas lights outside cages as night lights for birds...) Mine is plugged in at all times and comes on automatically when it's dark. That way I don't have to turn it on or off. A timer would work too of course...

Hope that helps and you can get some sleep again!
