Montezuma Quail in Arizona

A striking male Montezuma Quail, Cyrtonyx montezumae. I had seen one fly off a gravel road in the Chiricahua Mountains on an earlier trip and followed it briefly as it blended into the grasses, so this was a much more satisfying look at this stunning bird.

 

April 9, 2019. Ash Canyon, Sierra Vista, Arizona.
