arizona_nature_photography This is what happens when teenage Quail don't listen to Momma, they get pecked on the head (you missed that part) ---it's life or death when chicks don't listen! There is always a reason they get corrected. Human kids can you take notes?!?!?! Lol 5d

spbandana My obsession with the baby quail continues. I'm constantly on the watch for them and taking so many photos - thank goodness for digital. Here they had been scratching for seeds with their parents and then decided to rest together in the sun. They are beyond adorable and I love the little guy with his mouth open.

ciquah I know it's a lot like yesterday's pic.... But they are ALL sleeping in this one and it's so cute I absolutely HAVE to share it. Plus I figure it's not exactly going to hurt anyone's eyes to look at it. #quail #gambelsquail 1w

I saw this adorable little covey of Gambel's quail babies taking afternoon naps yesterday. Their Momma and Daddy were scratching up some snacks close by, but the kids obviously needed a little break. Isn't their desert camouflage impressive? #quail #gambelsquail #azwildlife

birderbruce This cool Gambel's Quail male allowed me to get close today at beautiful Snow Canyon State Park just north of St.George UT. They typically stay close to the ground but this guy had to get his singing on up in a scruby tree. They have a fairly small year round range in the US southwest desert. At first I thought he was a California Quail, but no, no, no... 1w
