The quail indeed came back to the dust bath bowl this morning. (This is a follow-up from yesterday’s blog.) I looked for them earlier but they were not there. Then I ended up scrambling them because I didn’t expect them and they were there! The teenagers didn’t come back but one female took advantage of that and probably fluttered about for a good five minutes or so. This time I was ready with the camera.
A Male comes to watch the female digging in.
More males came back and watched her. She dug in pretty deep.
When she was done a male jumped in. He is one of the double topknotted ones.
