Two Quail in a Tree

Great morning in the hills.
As I came around a corner, an hour into our hike, Bailey and Chloe were up ahead as they always are.  When I looked up the rise and over to my right I saw Bailey with his front paws up on a tree trunk staring up into the branches.   
Look at the top left corner of the picture for the quail.
 In the next second, a quail flew out of the branches and Bailey gave chase for a hundred feet or so.
I looked up at the tree and there was the mate to the one that had flown away.  He was still there spying us from his perch.
Bailey is quite the bird dog.  I love this boy!
