Around the neighborhood

As I was out buying a newspaper this morning, I came across a covey of Gambrel Quail. As I have learned, one of the males always seeks out a high spot to keep track of any danger and if he spots one (cat) to sound the alarm to the rest of the group. This guy was no exception and I snapped a picture through my car window. Sorry about those power lines.

We have new neighbors in the other half of our duplex. We knew they had a German shepherd dog but it appears they also have a little black cat. He's taken to visiting but he's still nervous about me.

Smoke, of course, (shot through a screen door) still wants everyone to know how regal he is.

Majestic photo of Smoke.
I love quails. I even see them in my central Phoenix neighborhood on the rare occasion.
