Q is for Quail

a-to-z-letters-q

Happy Friday, dear reader!  I hope the weather is lovely where you’re at.  Here in the northern part of the Sonoran Desert it’s WINDY – has been ALL. WEEK. LONG.  I’m originally from southwestern Kansas, and I’ve NEVER been a big fan of the wind!  Breezes are great, but wind?  Seriously….it can stop now!!!  😦

No sense in moaning anymore – it’ll just make me think about my sinuses, and how much I loathe the wind – so let’s get back on track, shall we?  Today’s letter is for Quail – actually the real name is Gambel’s Quail.

GambelsQuail_web_000I love these little birds – they’re so cute!  You can find them pretty much everywhere there’s a little bit of open space.  My son attends a small branch of the local community college, and they’re all over the campus.  Early in the morning, or of an evening before the sun goes down, we can see them in the front yard.  They can fly, but usually they walk around, looking for seeds and such to eat.

So, dear reader, there you have it – proof that not all of our Sonoran Desert animals look scary!  🙂   What’s been your favorite animal I’ve blogged about so far?  Have you learned anything new, or a tidbit you didn’t know about?  Inquiring minds would love to know!

Happy hiking, and don’t let the wind get you down.  😉  LOL

    We see throngs of quail when we go out for our evening run. They are the cutest things! 🙂
