Camera Critters #226

California Quail are a common sight in my neck of the desert.  I have seen them everywhere around town and out of town.  This male and female pair were happily hanging out in my favorite lizard hunting grounds until I interrupted their fun.

Awesome photos! Our Bob White's are common here, but usually you just hear them and rarely see them.

He's a beauty. We used to see quail (different variety) around here all the time. Now they are hard to find.
