They have such personality, I love watching them.
Such a beautiful bird. So cute.
Look at those beautiful feather markings! Amazing patterning.I like quail for their goofy carelessness about humans. They're not so much fearless as unaware. And all the time, the black top knot is bobbing.
Great quail shot! The layering of the breast feathers is so intricate!A few days ago my 6-year-old grandson made some comment about a newt so I went back and found the newt pictures you posted some days back. He was in such awe!
Gorgeous colour and they are very enjoyable to watch.
One of my favorite birds. Great stuff!
Great details, they have so much to offer!
A magical picture! I love quails!
such a beautiful bird
Gorgeous capture as always, Jill! Love the the breast feathers! Love the details you caught! Such a beautiful bird! Enjoy the rest of your week!Sylvia
National Geographic stunning, Jill ... intense personality with the catch light ... amazing!
Beautiful bird and beautiful picture. I love seeing them with their babies parading after mom.
Love the pretty lines on the bird.ROG, ABC Wednesday

What a beautiful photo of a pretty little bird!On behalf of the team, thanks for taking part in ABC Wednesday this week! :)
What an exquisite bird Jill! I was thrilled the other day to hear a couple of quail near our garden. Last year they disappeared and I feared the Cooper's hawk got them.
a great capture of a handsome bird.
I love the detail of her feathers. Amazing photo!Happy WW! Come check out some photos I took at a wedding in England: http://tinyurl.com/2enrufy
We saw a couple on our walk along the river today. Must be quail season. Today was one of those days i wished I'd brought my camera.
Wow, what a beautiful shot!
I don't think I've ever seen a quail. They certainly look too pretty to eat!
I miss California. I posted a picture of Armstrong woods this week. I miss green. Nevada is very brown, though we do have quail. But not as good looking as California quail
Great shot, I love his Quiff!

That's quite a quail! And a quality photo too!
Wow! Nice capture.
Stunning capture!!Love the colors!
Beautiful shot - nicely done. Happy WW!
A good one. I've had one or two wander across my path recently. Perhaps I can get a snap of one to be prepared for the ever present Q quandry for the next round.
Beautiful shot ~ I've never seen a California Quail up front, so it's quite a treat!
Beautiful shot of a quail. I had to borrow a bird photo for this post! Otherwise I pride myself on taking my own pics. This time I got help from several sources.Best wishes,Annahttp://annasadornments.blogspot.com/2010/05/q-as-in-quilts-quartz-abc-wednesday.html
Wow! This is a fantastic shot of a quail. They live around us here in the norCal foothills, but they always move so fast that all I can detect is the little feather sticking up and out on their heads. I didn't know they had those beautiful breast feathers that look sort of like fish scales.
Nature photos are my favorite. Nice one.Happy WW!http://www.earlsdaughter.com/2010/05/wordless-wednesday-we-blog-edition.html
