Female Brown Quails

at North Pine Dam.

A shot from the archives as I didn't get out to shoot this weekend.

There are flocks of these little birds at the dam. Impossible to see in the long grass, you can walk right past them and not even know it.

    Oh cool, I wonder if they are what live is the scrub at my place, There is some kind of bird a similar size living in the lantana it runs along the ground and into the bush most of the time I don't see them fly much.

    That could very well be them. I've spotted one on Dairyfarm Lane too (well ok not on the Lane, but rather in the ferns to the side).
