Quail Chicks Following Papa

We have been seeing lots of quail broods for several weeks now. I spotted a pair and a couple of chicks crossing the road near here and got this shot of them escaping into the desert under a mesquite. Mama is already out of sight but papa leads the two chicks right after her. Click on the image to enlarge.
