Mike Mee noticed this male California Quail standing guard on Buddha statue. The rest of the covey was feeding on the ground below.
Quail take dirt baths, which is pretty amazing to see. This next photos were taken by Robert Scarola.
Here the female joins the male. Robert thinks the male is saying, "Look! This is a great place for a dirt bath."
Thanks to Mike and Robert for allowing me to share their photos with you here.
