A-Z challenge…..and so to Q

I'm sure I left it here ....


In my back yard out here in the east valley we are lucky enough to have itinerant gambel’s quails. They are nervy little things so although I see a fair bit of them getting non blurred shots can be tricky- though not as tricky as our hummingbirds! So my quails are my entry for Q of the south west. With thanks to Mr N for sharing his shots as my catalogue on this Mac is sending me into a spin!


Blogging from A to Z April Challenge



Published by


Welcome to my blog! After a L O N G break from blogging during which Instagram (vannilla)took over my life, I am returning in a more varied format. Yes, I will bake and have been a Thermomix users from the days before it was cult-like. I'll share the best but I will also include that other hobby in my life, photography from my small island and beyond. If you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you! Anne

  1. Hi Nancy how lovely to hear about your quails and also to relate you more closely to your blog. I am very jealous that you can see her on the eggs. When we have seen the tiny babies in our yard they have rapidly gone down from 10 to 2. 😦
    Thanks for such kind comments, Nancy. I only live here a few months a year ( and only for another week) but yes I love it. I will have a look at your recipe blog.

  2. I love the Quail. Right now as I type away to you. I have a Momma Quail right outside my office window laying on her eggs. There are about 8 eggs. (By the way you and I have some things in common. We have a friend named Ingrid, we live in Arizona and love it, and we like recipes!) Neat blog you have!

  3. Thank you so much. I had never come across them before spending time here in phoenix area. They are timid and a little comical in the way they run and fly. They are not natural fliers. Needless to say it’s the male whose the pretty one with his show off head piece 🙂
