I was up at Tucker and this Quail was calling. Every 20 or so seconds he'd throw his head back and cut loose.

edit-Thanks Cap!

This is from my commute into work in the Seattle Union Bay Land-Fill/Nature-Area a week ago. I'm calling it a first year Bald

My excuse for the quality: itsy bitsy pocket camera (panasonic dmc-zs15). It would have been nice to have carried my better rig.

(over share alert: I love Quails)

just throwin this out there- but so far its a Willoughby Stumper too!

On a common poorwill, the center toe claw af each foot is serrated with pectinations on the inside edge of the claw.. It is the only bird i know of with such claws.. Grouse all have pectinations on their toes proper but not the toe nail or claw.

Anyone know about the purpose, name of said oddity or anything abut them?

Hey BobD, you ever get Red-faced Warblers over in Taos? I know they are in NM and typically in the mtns, but thought the range stopped a bit south of there. They have a very pretty and unusual color scheme for a warbler.

The elusive Red-Faced Warbler (at least for me). We will be back in Ramsey Canyon in about a month and that bird is number one on my list. He's thwarted me for two trips so far. A real rascal!

Ron,

all nightjars have serrations on the nail of thier middle toe, referred to as a "feather comb", it is a defining character for members of the family Caprimulgidae.

Supposedly they use it to help clean all those bugs off their windshields. No, sorry, I meant to help clean their plumage.
