So Tiny.


Nature is a brutal mistress so I never cease to wonder how on earth the tiny precocial Gambell's Quail chicks manage to survive. Especially when my resident Road Runners are hot on their trail. Of course, many of them don't survive which is why the female quails are capable of producing multiple broods throughout the summer. Good luck little guys, its a big scary world out here!

They are super speedy aren't they Kathie? But I guess if you are that small you have to be!
