Quail on a diagonal fencepost, Point Reyes National Seashore

Quail on a diagonal post - Pat Ulrich Wildlife Photography

A male California quail posing on a fencepost along Sir Francis Drake Blvd in Point Reyes National Seashore. This was the only quail we saw on our drive along the length of the road that day. Around this time of year there are usually a bunch hanging out along the fences, but at least this one stayed on the post for a while to let me get a few different compositions.

  1. Great shots, Pat. Opps, shame on me, I've been calling him a "her." Enjoy your day.

  2. Wow ! Great shots of a awesome bird :)

  3. I like the diagonal composition Pat. It was great running into you yesterday.

  4. Thanks, Carol! The females aren't quite as flashy but they are beautiful in their own way too. Unfortunately, they are a lot more shy than the males, and tend avoid being in the open (and thus amenable to photography).

    Thanks, Pescalune!

    Thanks, Jim! I hope we see each other again in the park sometime!

    Thanks, Amila!
