Quail, Quail Everywhere!

How many Gambel's quail can you count?

I looked out my backyard window and there was a covey of quail that had taken over my table and chairs.

The male quail has the prominent feather on top, while the female does not have such a strong feature.

Look carefully to count them all. And there were more that did not even get into the photo.

Venice photos are at Viva la Voyage!

They've really embraced your lawn furniture as a perfect perch.

I count six, but there could be one more hidden on that chair. How did you sneak the picture without scaring them off?

How nice that you have patio furniture for them :)

I can't even count all the quail outside my own windows. I love to listen to their little babble and watch their bobbles as the scamper about.
Excellent capture of them sharing your lawn furniture Julie.

Irrespective of the number, these Gambels look so calm and relaxing in your house!
