Quails in Papago Park

Picturesque is the walk along the Papago Walk Path. The Sun and the clouds make the views often a photographer's dream. These are the papago Buttes, and if you would like to sound like a local, you will pronounce the word [bjuutz]. It took me a while before I stopped calling them the red rocks at Papago Park.

 

I often see jack rabbits, doves and quails on my walks in the park here. 

 

 

 

The quails were having fun in the dust - while I was waiting for them to cross, I tested my video skills, too. 

 

 

 

Papago Park is within 15 minutes from Tempe and provides easy walking, hiking, and connecting with Nature, while still being close to the city.

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat , thank you very much for stopping by and for the feature. Those little birds made me smile - how they were walking,stopping to eat something, then enjoying their dust bath ... They were funny.

Endre Barath, Jr. , the dust bathing is on the second video, I think. Are you asking me if the baby quails are being just naughty kids by dust-bathing?

Endre Barath, Jr. , I read from the 'scientific' literature on google that this dust-bath has some health benefits for the feathered fowl. :)

HI Barbara Todaro , I walk on the paved path and the well-trodden trails, so some of the scary creatures like rattle snakes don't usually go there. I haven't met any myself, but I can see some of my friends posting their sitings of snakes when they go to some of the wilder places.

Hello Steffy - thanks for the introduction to Papago Park.  The combination of light and the formations of the rocks definitely has an appealing sculptural feel.

Steffy,

We had quails appear in all 3 places we have lived.  We now see them in the bluffs and in the Salt Marsh Reserve.   I like rocks and the into to Papago Park.  Wishing you a great week.  A

Hi Michael Jacobs , I loved your choice of words - 'sculptural feel'. I am so fascinated to look at those buttes, and the forms and rock colors around it.

Hi Ron and Alexandra Seigel , I enjoyed the songs they were performing in May, but at that time it had not occurred to me to record them. Thanks for stopping by.

Loved the quail crossing. You should brand these, Steffy. Nice to add to your video library.

Hi Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD , thanks for stopping by and for featuring this video. I have to learn how to brand videos. I thought, it happens automatically when I post them in my channel on YouTube.
