[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
All trips to bosque del apache , basicaly every day you see these little grouse, but this is the first time ever they were not shy enough to let me take their picture...saw them foraging next to the road, and yes they scrambled...5 minutes waiting with the engine turned off got me the whole group slowly moving back in sight

Shalom Jeroen,

Long time no see...

Lovely "buggers". I remember them well from my stay in Arizona a long time ago. Excellent capture!

TFS,

Ishi

Hello Jeroen,
You were fortunate to capture such a neat image of this beautiful Gambel's Quail. Excellent eye contact and quite attractive markings in it's plumage. I like the low POV and natural surroundings in which you photographed it.
Ron

Excellent photo with a very nice colorful bird.
