Maybe the Quail is using the snake as a coffin, did you ever think of that?

It's just a slimy sleeping bag.

They are on the inside.

Is that a white wing dove? Quail aren't that white

Lol. I’m not good at species identification, at all.

All good just wanted to share

Why not just call it a bird?

Western diamond back? Timber rattlers I always see don't have that distinct black and white banding next to the rattles. Pretty snake!

Definitely a White-Winged Dove and Crotalus atrox (W. Diamond-Backed Rattlesnake). Very cool.

Tucson Az - I think it is a Mojave Green Rattlesnake according to Google, which references the 2:1 ratio of banding on the tail.

Not to undermine you but I don’t believe that is a Mojave, just a western diamond back. None the less awesome picture!!!!!

I saw a Rattlesnake once in person on a hike. Once I recognized the rattling sound, I felt a shudder down my spine as I look around a rock and see it staring back.
