I went out to get the mail and startled a quail and her baby. The baby ran into a corner using that age-old hiding trick of if I can't see you and I pretend not to be here, you won't see me...LOL!
Later, I peeked out and the parent was watching several babies, so I guess a quail family has moved into my courtyard. I thought the pictures might make you smile.

OMG! How cuddly fuzzy wuzzy cute are they!!!!!!
This is the most jealous I've been of any find posted on this board!!!
I hope you continue to see the little family as the chicks grow.
(I should probably mention DH wants a quail "farm" I better not show him this!)

Really cute and we don't have that kind of quail on the prairie -- only bob white!

That made me smile too. You must live on the west coast because those are California quails.

I agree and hope they stay safe. TFS
While we have grouse (somewhat similar to quails) in this area I seldom see them unless they are slowly crossing the road and I have to wait for them. Do hear them more often than see them tho. There are California quails in this province but they are not native but were introduced.
