On clear cool quiet September mornings, it’s nice to have a photogenic neighborhood bird or two in the neighborhood.

Another quiet morning hike with dog. Similar to yesterday—few posing species, a couple missed hpotos, two or three silently flitting migrants that I didn’t get a good look at.

But on our return, a house or two from home, I stopped the truck, grabbed my camera, and got a photo of a pretty good-lookin’ quail.
