Popping his head up to see if I am a threat or not.
I was not as I was inside shooting through our sliding glass door.
We have a covey of quail that visits our yard everyday scratching about beneath the feeders for all the scraps the other birds carelessly fling to the ground.
I intend to work on gaining their trust enabling me to sit on the deck and photograph them without a sheet of glass obstructing the sharpness of the image.

a bird i would love to see in person! i think they are incredibly beautiful!
They are so cute..how lucky to have them visiting you...
What a cute (and curious) visitor you have!
It's the first time I see this bird, I'd love to see more shots of it. ;-)
*Thanks for your kind reply John!
Such beautiful birds.
A beautiful little bird to see...
What is it about quail? They're just so darn cute.
I like birds that help clean up after the messier ones. :)
Hi John...Precious little guy...l like there little feather on the head...perhaps the ladies of old got the idea for the feather in there hats from the Quail...lol!!
You sure do a great job through glass..can't imagine how good it will be if you get one from outside... Love the peek shot!!
Great job getting such good shots through glass John. I keep the screens out all winter so I can get stelth shots out the window. Quail are so beautiful though, well worth the effort.
Cheers to you Sir!
I think they are the most fun birds to watch.
They are so beautiful! I hope you do gain their trust.
Hi there - what a great bird.
The curlews are actually knee high to a person - so they are not small at all!

Very looking bird, great sighting. And wonderful photos!! Have a great day.
A gorgeous little bird -- how neat to be able to see them every day. :)
Such a fun-loving-looking bird with that neat little pennant on his head! Thanks for sharing and happy holidays!
They're such cute little birds!
this would not be a casual sighting for me- I've never seen a quail and these shots are pretty incredible, with the light and close-up details of their feathers. what a beautiful bird. the first shot is my fave - he looks like he has ears.
