Best Camera Trap Captures – June and July 2016

I’ll be sharing the best camera trap captures from each month in 2016. These images are from the field research I’m conducting for 3 Rivers Foundation, so I’ll be presenting these captures all the way back to January 2016.

These images are selected to show here are based on the animal behavior captured, as well as uniqueness of the capture.

These are tricky little birds – blue quail. In west Texas, eastern New Mexico and the Oklahoma Panhandle they are known as blue quail. Elsewhere in Arizona and western New Mexico they are called scaled quail.  In Colorado and southern Kansas both names are used.
