I don't think I've ever shown off this snowguy. I like the colors used and the big carrot nose.

Yesterday I had only about a dozen quail, but earlier in the week there were almost 60!

As the morning sun drifts down on the backyard, the quail come out of the 'pucker-brush'.

I always spread out some sunflower seeds on the ground near my feeders. 

The birds preen and peck as they stroll around the backyard. 

Right now everyone gets along.

I think I have about equal numbers of males and females.

In a couple of months they'll start pairing up and territorial battles will commence.
