This is about four separate groups of quail that decided that eating was more important than fighting.
Well, mostly not fighting, as you'll see if you click through the above to watch the roughly one-minute-long video.
Later, a couple of helicopters, presumably out of NAS Fallon (we get a lot of them here) flew by while a train passed on the main line.
The tank cars in the foreground are parked on the Fernley "House Tracks."
In the spring and autumn (and autumn seems to start around the first of September for this purpose), we can enjoy our porch, as it's neither too hot nor too cold.
