Mom and Dad watching

These two lovely quail had a flock of babies. Unfortunately for taking photos, the baby quail stayed under thick bushes and only came out to run very fast on their tiny stick legs. Meanwhile, the mother and father quail stood guard on a rock overlooking all of the babies. They kept talking to each other and calling to the babies. They are very attentive parents. I love to hear the quail talk back and forth to each other, it is one of most familiar sounds I hear in the desert.
