Someone turn it on

A grey francoliin on a roof in Hawaii

On my recent walk along the coast to Hapuna (here), the trail passed through a residential area where there were some structures with a kind of thatched roof. I saw this Gray Francolin resting on one of them and liked how it blended in with the thatch. I thought the sprinkler could offer it a little refreshment, though I suspect if it went off the bird would have taken off like a bat out of hell.

      They’re ground nesters and spend most of their time on the ground, so I think this was just a quiet resting perch. And yes those are fire sprinklers. I was surprised to see roofs like that, especially there.
