~~Window Snapping~~

The other day, the kittens were going crazy in the window, so I go check to see what is making them nuts. new bunny...wonder where he got the baby carrots?
(....Shhhh...wasn't me.....)

Later, Tiggy Too and Mr. Bear were peeking through the kitchen shutters.

Gambel's quails, named after some guy named "William Gambel, were making their nests in the back. The cocks and hens mate for life and stick together, whether they are nesting, hunting or caring for their young.  The boys, of course, are the prettier of the two.

A group of quails has several collective nouns, including "battery," "drift," "flush," "rout," and a "shake" of quails.

They lie quietly under brush to hide from a diversity of predators--snakes, raptors, foxes, bobcats and coyotes.

This picture has nothing to do with this blog.  So there.
