Dapper Dan

P1030749photos and words by cheri sabraw

I love to be in the presence of a guy who feels comfortable with himself, with his feathers, with his direction in life, and most of all, with his point of view.

A guy who flies to the top of his world, albeit humble,  and calls out for all  to hear,  “Chi-ca-go, Chi-ca-go.”



I love a guy who then sits back ,with a jaunty turn of the head and a feather in his hat, content with his song, his style, his manhood.


If only he wouldn’t finish my sentences, he’d be perfect.

    That’s a funny-looking bird. Do you know what that bird is called?

    • Cheri says:

      Hi Yang,
      Yes. I do. That bird is a Gambel’s quail, native to the deserts. This fellow is all puffed up. They are a delightful bird to watch…quite vociferous.

  2. So cute and so true; but how do we train them?

    If Dan Quayle had been this cute (and this eloquent) his career might have gone differently. Great photos of both species.

    I’d keep well away from him, if I were you. He looks a real con-man to me. Up to the nesk in debt and no two cents to rub together. He can’t look you in the eye, that’s his trouble.

    Great photos. I’ve always loved the Gambels, that quirky top knot, and such attitude!
