Taken in Tucson, Az at Sweetwater Wetlands with my Canon SX10IS March 2010

Gambel’s Quail is a widespread resident in canyons and deserts, especially in the southern Great Basin an Sonoran Desert, It has also adapted to suburban areas and sometimes visits feeders. Gambel’s is more arboreal than bobwhites, feeding on fruit and seeds in trees adn large cacti and roosting in bushes or trees. Its populations decrease notably during droughts.

VOICE Male sings a repeated hup WAAY ha ha. Nasal calls include and inquisitive whaaoo, a sharp u-wik, and a collared-dove-like hehh.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.

    Great shot – I think of these as ground-dwellers, but as we don’t have them here, What Do I Know? Love his little cockade.

  • Well usually that is where I myself see them. I read that they are the only few that ""perch" but never so them. So I was excited to see him higher than me in this tree calling out for a mate! I would say you know quite a bit gal, thank you !
