It's a pretty common occurrence to see quails in our neighborhood. And this time of year, we're often lucky to spot a whole family of them...Dad and Mom with little babies running along behind them. Yesterday we saw a bunch of them in our backyard, but they scurry away so fast, I didn't have time to grab my camera. Today, my kids alerted me that the quails were back. I grabbed the camera and got a few shots before they ran off. Later, we saw them again out front. I couldn't get any of the babies -- they were hiding under the bush -- but Daddy Quail was up on my neighbor's roof chirping at anyone who came near.
Please ignore the weeds in a very neglected corner of my yard! :)
