Some field time with the dogs

Today (Sunday) I took the dogs out for a little run since it was nice out. They were glad to get out and stretch their legs a bit. They were able to get on a small group of 4 quail that have been out of the johnny house for a while. We also got a pair of hen pheasants up that have been on their own for quite a few months. I have been seeing a good number of hawks in the area but the birds seem to be doing well. In six months I know that only one quail got taken by some kind of predator. I'm suprised they are doing as well as they are. My wife also saw a rooster and hen in the morning next to a recently cut corn field. Here are a couple of pics I was able to take:

Nittany on quail

I got a chance to use the new camera I got my wife for Christmas and used it on some of the quail:











Getting the dogs out on these birds is the best I can do on a regular basis this time of year. I think I enjoy seeing the quail the most even though they are from a pen.

Good to see the dogs are getting some field time and I am sure it is a relaxing enjoyable time for you. I don't know a better way to spend a midwinter day. Happy New Year and I enjoy seeing your posts.

Re: Some field time with the dogs

Thanks for the comments. I went back to check on things yesterday and I could hear the hawks in the area. But the 4 quail are still hanging around out of the pen and doing well. Hopefully they are learning a thing or two while they are out.

Great Bobwhite pics Bwire.
If any of the quail meet their demise, let me know.
Their feathers would make for some nice soft hackles.
