A fine capture of an interesting species from a favourable low viewpoint Jane, which cleared the BG and displayed the salient characteristics of the bird admirably. TFS my friend.

What a splendid capture of this Quail! It's a lovely bird and your capture is spot-on, very sharp and the colours are very beautiful. I always imagined Quails being on the ground but this one is obviously a high flyer!!
Well done, Jane!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Great shot of the Quail, I think he looks like a 1920's flapper with his headband complete with Feather.
Nicely composd with a goos POV and excellent pose.
Good details, nice colours and lovely warm light.

Good captured these bird, a lots of details on his feathers.
Beautiful colors and pov, also the BG are exellent.
I believe indeed that human's are the greatest predaters and mostly for the fun!
So 1,2 million of birds each year is unbelieveble but true i think!

This Quail makes me giggle a little..I think Hilary summed it up quite well....That said this is a superb capture..The sharpness and the pose is perfect..I love the beak just open as I guess he is calling for a mate.
Perfect work Jane

I have not yet looked at my camera but I ran into a cousin of this one this morning on my walk...I don't think it came out though. This is just fine and besides mine was a California Quail. It appears we have quite a few here..I see them almost ever day....wonderful image Jane. I happen to like these birds...and the story goes on from there..

What a wonderful bird and that on the roof :)
Only birds sometimes landing on my roof are Sparrows, Magpies and Blackbirds, but not nearly wonderful ones like this.
Never seen an image of this species before.
Very good composition with great sharpness and exposure.
Feather details, colors, contrast and the catchlight in the eye of the bird are most wonderful.
The way the Quail does stand out against the blue sky is great.
Very well done and excellent note. TFS!!!
Kindest regards, Harry

Wonderful shot of this elegant ganbel's Quail sitting like a king on that roof. Very impressive colours and details on its plumage and great use of natural lighting. That blue sky again looks majestic as BG and presents a fine base of the subject to stand out. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

I love clear blue skies!
And Jane, what a lovely bird!I love the plume (I hope that's what they call it) on its head is like a crown...I've heard of Quails being hunted, it happens in India as well.
I've never seen this variety of quails.The bird also looks sad to me, don't ask me why, but that's how I feel..
A lovely shot, Jane.
