Visitors to our Garden
As we walked toward the garden, were delighted to see Mr. and Mrs. Quail having a sun and dust bath. I have a couple large bricks at the end of the tomato bed and they were basking in the warmth.
It crossed my mind that maybe they were picking out a spot to nest as they just drop eggs on shallow depressions, etc. I was kind of glad they hadn't cause I wouldn't disturb them and how could I garden?
Tried to get a pic but the soil and birds blended in so well I just gave up - but I have a pic for you of a male. Of course, showier than the females. Actually, some males have gorgeous turquoise blue chest feathers. Look forward to their first babes and seeing them run - just like Road Runner- can't even see their tiny legs spinning so fast.
