Red-necked Spurfowl



Photographed at 3:48 pm on 21 January, 2013 in Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 300mm f/4L IS telephoto lens + EF 1.4x extender.



ISO 100, 1/500 sec., f/5.6, 420mm focal length, handheld Manual Exposure.

What is typically seen on game drives throughout Kenya are Yellow-necked Spurfowl. They run across dusty tracks and perch on fallen snags for all to see.



This was also a spurfowl but a different species — Francolinus afer, Red-necked Spurfowl. It was seemingly alone, and was the only sighting I've ever made of its species.

Wow! Quail-a-Go-Go!

Thank you for sharing your fun with all of us.

I grew up loving quail and have missed them during the decades that I've lived overseas.

All of your quail images are terrific, but the high-stepping mountain quail is something else!

Few species are more appealing than quail. Their presence in a forested garden adds charm and drollery.

With Appreciation,

Tom K.
