Gambel's Quail

Meanwhile, back in Arizona's Madera Canyon area we were shooting various birds from a blind and managed to get this Gambel's Quail.
My main setup was a D800 with a 200-400 Nikkor mounted on a Manfrotto Carbon Fibre tripod with the Manfrotto 393 Gimbal mount.  But off to one side was a skeleton Cholla cactus where birds were landing, so I set up my D7000 with a Nikkor 70-200mm on a Bogen tripod so I could reach over and press the shutter, set on C2 drive.
The male came back a few times and every now and then lifted his head so I got a catch light in his eye.
