Who Are You Calling Fat?

One of the major selling points for me when we viewed this property years ago was the resident population of Gambell's Quail. They featured on the very first post of this blog and they continue to be a constant source of delight. The quail block on our back patio ensures that these charismatic characters continue to be a large presence in our lives and I wouldn't change it for the world.


I am linking this post to Eileen's Saturday Critters.

I am thinking this may be my first visit to your little piece of land in Arizona and I have to say, it is a smashing success. The Gambells Quail is LOL funny ... I don't know if he/she always looks like that, but if not I am guessing there a multiple comical scenarios to see.
This has been a pleasure, for sure ...
