Male quail sticks to trail


They usually ... um ... er ... quail when seeing me coming but this male Brown Quail (Coturnix ypsilophora) in Tyto today quietly went about his business for quite a while before quitting the track.

No quarrel from me Tony. Not normally so quiescent those quail. Your quarry has beautiful markings. Oh stop this! I'll put my QWERTY keyboard away now.
