My birding and bird-feeding friend, Marieannette McCabe, has a covey of quail residing in the thicket outside her door near Ashland.  She has deliberately kept the blackberry thicket in place to shelter “her covey.”  And I happen to know she does occasionally provide food, so the quail take her presence for granted, not panicking when she comes to the window.

So here we have daddy quail coming out into the open for a dust bath, and then the half-grown quailets follow his example. Thanks to Marieannette for sharing these photos:CQ1CQ2CQ3CQ4
