Quail on the Table

 

The last time I was at the Desert Botanical Garden for a walk, I stopped and sat for a while at the outdoor cafe where quite a lot of quail were wandering about looking for scraps to eat.

They made themselves right at home jumping from chairs to tables looking for any tiny scrap that someone might have left behind.

They were fun to watch scampering around from table to table.  The garden is always a source of entertainment no matter where I go.

How on earth did such a weird-looking bird evolve?!

We get them just about everywhere here, they run away from people and cars.
