Quail on the attack...

This morning, while drinking my coffee, these noises caused me to look up from the newspaper:

You just gotta love Gambel's quail--
(and their scientific name: callipepla gambelii)
attacking their reflection, this male-and-female pair...
They mate for life, and in the spring, 
become very aggressive toward other pairs...
I wonder if they're planing to nest nearby?

We've already had white-winged dove babies in our backyard this spring;
a covey of quail would be a fun addition.

Their 'headdresses' add to their precious goofiness.
You can't not smile when you see them...

That is all.
