Commonly known as the “blue quail”.

Several of these gorgeous birds were running around Lake Colorado City State Park, Colorado City, TX early this spring. Courtship was in full swing. Often we would see two males trying to win over the attention of one female.

A typical RV site at this Texas State Park with lots of room. Our site had a view of the lake.

  1. I’m enjoying catching up on all your posts! Can’t wait to see you next month!! I’ve been having daily conversations with our red-bellied woodpecker. He loves the suet blocks; don’t know if he’s thanking me or scolding me to leave the yard work so he can eat, but then he finally decides it’s safe enough and comes down from the Live Oak for lunch. No photos, too shadowy amongst the trees and he’s FAST.

    1. Hey Karla! I am very glad you enjoy these bird photos. I know you love them, as I do. Your birds are going to miss your conversations with them! Love!
