Oro Valley Homes Come Complete With Gambel's Quail!

Home comes complete with Gambel's Quail: Mike in Tucson, AZ mortgage lender

 

~ 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?!
