Arizona’s Love Birds, Gambel Quail, mate for life, except when a unhappy female leaves her brood of up to 16 chicks and heads for a mate in another covey. We usually see the parents leading a single-file convoy of tiny puffs across a busy roadway. The miracle is that they all make it to the other side!
P.S. This painting, owned by a member of Arizona Press Women, was selected as the logo of the National Federation of Press Women’s Conference at the Valley Ho in Scottsdale, Az. Of course I said yes! when they asked to use the image. Then, how easy it was to identify conference attendees! They were all carrying bright orange bags with the quail logo.
