While walking last week, I passed some underbrush that was full of little quail. But because they are so quick and blend in so well, it’s hard to get photos of them.
I was only able to get this shot, although I stood watching their busy busyness for about 15 minutes. They’re very adorable, if somewhat elusive!

Your patience paid off. Good photo.
Thank you very much, Neil. 🙂
Great photo, lovely bird
Thank you, Ally. 🙂 They really are cute, and quite capable of flying but I don’t see them do that very often.
Quail remind me of the Spruce Grouse (fool hen). They blend in real well, but once they spot you, they start making noises and this only serves to attract people and predators. Happy Wednesday Lynette. Allan
These little quail are too busy chatting with each other to notice! They are well hidden under the low bushes and also well camouflaged; I could see their movement but not the individuals. And, of course, they are so busy! They rarely stop to pose for a good photo!
I miss the quail we used to have in our area. They’re so much fun to watch.
I agree! I could have watched this group for a long time. Cheers.
Thank you very much. 🙂 This photo was a bit of good luck as they were moving rather quickly.
Adorable, I agree! I’ve never really seen what quail look like – great picture, Lynette!
Thank you very much, Barbara. They are so cute and so tiny (the adults weigh about 160 grams – 5 oz) and they love to non-stop chat. I really enjoyed just watching them. Cheers.
Hahaha. 🙂 Definitely!
Glad you managed to capture something. They do blend in quite well with their surroundings.
Thanks, Linda. I have a couple of good shots from past tries, but this time they were so easily able to move from bush to bush that I couldn’t get much of a good angle.
