More Wildlife

Here we have some baby quail. There are around 20 or so, apparently 2 hatches because there are 2 different sizes. The tiny ones stay mainly in the bushes and I tried to get their picture but they are too fast. The older ones are less leery. There are 2 males and one female adults. We have a great time watching them. Watch out for the Humming Bird Circus. These Hummers are soooooo funny to watch. They fight and zoom about. I was sitting on the front porch taking these pictures and they zoomed so close to Bill's face I thought they were attacking him. Early morning and late evening they put on a heck of a show. They go through the whole bottle in a day and we have to refill every morning. We don't bother putting red food color in the water as they seem to find it ok without it.
