So this fellow was at Wenderholm - how exciting to see it Pam. He is posing so beautifully for you.
Very good focus, good eye contact too.

You have made an excelent portret of this well looking bird. The image is extremly sharp so that the pattern of the plumage can be very well observed. As you have chosen an excelent POV you have had good eye contact with the bird. You have made good use of the flash getting nice saturated and naturaly looking colors.
Thank you for sharing and i wish you a Happy New Year,

Hello Pam !
What a beautiful bird you have captured here, I specially like the feather standing up on its head, and it's beautiful expression and pose. Excellent details, nice natural colors, splendid blurred BG, beautiful composition and POV. Very well done !

Absolutely awesome. The tail is a little soft but the detail on the head and face is amazing. The background also compliments the subject perfectly.
Very well done and TFS

Nice yo see you back here...i hope you are well :)
This is a lovely photo of California Quail...it's such a funny looking bird with that...thing...on its head! :)) Well if Elvis is dead, he's reincarnated in this bird here :))
Seriously now, the photo is excellent and the fact that we can see it from this funny angle is all your merit. Further more, the quail is impeccably sharp and also well lit, thanks to your great fill-in flash work.
Great shot is all aspects and nice presentation, too.
Bravo, TFS and Happy New Year
