Quail Husband & Wife
I love those birds. They live down the lane toward the back forty. Mama and Daddy ran in front of us but sorry to say there were no babies following behind. John tells me in bad years sometime you will see two hens with one male running together. He says both hens will lay eggs in the same nest. Later you will see three adults with a string of babies running behind. The weather this week is supposed to be in the high ninties with a 20% and 30% chance of rain. Those kinds of rain are not enough or in enough places to do any good but it can give us hope for the fall.
