Everyone Loves Quail
Updated: Jan 1, 2019
Who doesn't love quail? Little round birds that scamper through our yards (if you're lucky) with Mom, Dad, many Chicks, and even Aunts and Cousins, all searching for seeds and bugs.
The large coveys are always preceded by the sentinel - the alert male who watches and warns of any dangers ahead. He stands tall with his black feather topknot ready to signal the families. Here are 2 watercolor paintings depicting Quail in action.
