Quail does a little bit of ‘roostery’

    The animal world has a number of comedians. I was entertained again this morning by a little rooster quail that lives in my back yard fencerow. I go out onto my porch, which sits above the ground several feet, to drink a cup of coffee very early when I first get up, and there are birds and squirrels and rabbits everywhere. My Labrador, Bolt, sits beside me and watches it all, his ears perked high, hoping that I will send him out to get one of the rabbits or squirrels, which he cannot catch. Though he knows he can’t catch one, he gets a great deal of pleasure in chasing the squirrels up a tree. Even now, he doesn’t know where they go.
