that Quail can fly at a very young age. This family was crossing the road and they flushed when the car stopped; managed to pop out and nab this series in a hurry. Extreme crops but still fun to have captured.

Thank you; these are always fun to see, even if they're a little skittish

Good reflexes, Eric. The young probably have to get in shape early for when hunting season rolls around.

Nice series there Eric. I bet that was fun to shoot. It is always to have learned something in the field, too.

Thank you, gents! ) Yeah, it's always fun to walk away with an "I didn't know *that* before".

These were taken in Eastern Washington State, somewhat near Othello/Royal City.
