Quail

I looks like we have a new addition to the local wildlife - quail. There are 3 of them and of course we've decided they are mommy, daddy and baby.

They are very well camouflaged. In fact, they may have been around for awhile disguised as mourning doves. They aren't much larger and sport similar colors. It was the call that tipped me off. When I first heard it I thought it sounded somewhere between a catbird and a squirrel. And it was so close. Then I peeked out the window and there was something new walking down the sidewalk.

I don't know if they migrate, so I'm not sure why they suddenly appeared. But I do enjoy the new attraction.

And of course, they're making the cats crazy.
