Not hunting season... baby making season. We have quail that live on the hill in the back. Every year we see them. This was the 2nd time I've seen them this year and they got close enough on the back porch for me to zoom in and get a photo. When they have their babies, they remind me of the Partridge Family with all the little chicks following along in a trail behind mom and dad. We usually get several families each season and they all travel together with their little ones. Very cute!
The word of the day is "covey". A covey is a group of quail.
