I love the quail that call our farm home. A family of quail is called a covey and we have several coveys that live here. They are very elusive and dart into the briar patches when they see us coming and are very hard to photograph. I was finally in the right place at the right time.
This pair was eating the leftover duck food and instead of flying off they perched on this fence post.
The male was being a little show off.
The colors and patterns are so pretty.
The little female was being shy. I’m glad they let me take pictures of them so I could share them with you! Enjoy!
