At least I think that's what it is. We were eating dinner when this bird showed up at the patio door and was just looking at us. Grabbed the D70 and went hunting, it didn't like to fly but it ran like hell in and out of bushes.

sure enuf is a quail (bobwhite) any bird dog trainers live near you? If it did not fly it could be a pen raised bird.

Not that I know of, we are pretty Suburbia/Urban around here. We do have a small area of woods near by and I know there have been deer and coyote's in there so that's where I'm thinking it came from.

Quail will often run unless startled by a dog or something real close then they are very fast of the takeoff and make a lot of noise. This looks like a young one and is somewhat overexposed. My dog Harley and I see quail every single day on the trail we walk on.
