Today, April 30, I saw new quail chicks for the first time this season.  Quail are hatched ready to peck and run around following their parents.  So, these 15 may have just hatched today.  There are usually 12-16 eggs in a nest.  It’s not a great picture because they run as soon as they know I am there with my camera, but it is always exciting to see the new young quail.  

What do 15 quail chicks do when another bird passes overhead?  

Run and try to hide under their male guardian. mk
