Territorial mama Quail chases away squirrel

Nine eggs in the nest. Quails are comfortable with the privacy of their nesting area. Squirrel tries to infiltrate. Boom!

I have seen a California Quail sit on the nest and leave occasionally in the afternoon. Nine eggs now. Will check back in three or four more days. Wow!
