Ode to the Quail (Part 2)

A covey
of
quail
wander and peck
in our
front yard.

Quick steps,
quick pecks.

Always
stirring.

Always
alert.

One loud noise
or
sudden movement
and
they all
scat.

Dispersing
in
all directions.

Some run,
some try
to fly.

Then...
BAM!

One flies
into
the window
of our
house.

I'm
not sure
quail
have the best
eyesight.
