I think I found where the quail are roosting and I'm pleased to report it's a very secure spot in the back of our yard. The bush they were under today is so dense that they can't be attacked from above by the (many) hawks and owls in the area.
When they were on the move today I tried to get another picture but mama quite literally got her feathers ruffled. And I don't want to make a mama afraid or worried for her babies.
Will keep trying, though.
