The Crooner

I have a particular affection for this photo, because of the memory that goes with it. One evening while working on my computer, this quail landed on a tree just outside the window. Normally, quail are quite skittish, but this one stood firm when I carefully opened the window to photograph him. We watched one another for quite some time, while going about our business. And his business that evening was singing. Though I know it wasn't for my benefit, it was a lovely evening being serenaded by a quail.
