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.
