The quails look great - wish I had been able to get shots like that when I was in Arizona.
To cooler weather birds - the Long-tailed Duck are back on Lake Ontario and I always post pics of them at this time of year. At this location groups of them move and feed feed as a flock, disappearing all at once leaving flat water then popping up all together maybe 20 seconds later. They're so preoccupied that they don't seem to be too bothered by me being there, though they will suddenly skitter across the water away from you at a moment's notice.
Another cloudy day so I used the DA*300mm without the TC.







Jacamar, I was actually taking photos of a golden eagle when the quail just ran up to see what I was doing....they took turns looking me over from on the rock pile, until someone started fighting!
