November 29, 2010 – Squeaky Bird

Posted in Snapshot365 with tags , , , on November 29, 2010 by AZSalsman

November 29, 2010I heard this squeak and thought it was a nearby door that needed oiling…but there was no door. So I thought maybe a branch was squeaking in the wind or ready to break. Then I discovered that this “squeak” was the chirp of this little bird. I don’t know what kind of bird it is but it had a unique voice. Would someone come and oil its throat?

November 18, 2010 – Quail

November 18, 2010Not to be confused with Dan or Ben Quayle, this was one of several of this little critter running around South Mountain park.  It is kind of amusing to me to see these little bird scurry about as they are much more agile running from place to place than flying.  In fact, I don’t know if I have ever seen one fly but they sure can run…their feet moving at breakneck speeds.  They are quite timid of people so I am surprised that this one walk straight for me.  Hmmmmmm.
