~ Gambel's Quail ~
We had dinner Sunday afternoon with friends up in Oro Valley (NW of Tucson.) After a scrumptious meal, we all sat outside taking in the view of Pusch Ridge. I naturally had my camera with me.
It's spring in the desert, and this male Gambel's quail is looking for a mate. Ignoring the humans completely, he strutted quickly through the yard, flew up to the wall that surrounds the yard, and found the highest spot - a post on the corner.
Puffing out his chest, he began to call, advertising his availability to the ladies.
Don't you like his head-dress?!
