Gambel's Quail - Male and Female - Nevada


This pair of quail posed on a rock for me. This pair only has one top not feather on their heads, but I saw some that had two on their heads. I saw more with just one than I have with two, but I have no idea if the number means anything.

There are lots of quail out courting right now and they will soon be sitting on eggs and hatching their young. I have been told that Road Runners will catch and eat many of the young quail before they learn to fly.
