Californian Quail

Every summer we are delighted to have a family of Quails visit our garden. It is charming to see the tight knit family unit.

The parents are so protective, always on guard looking for danger,

They move so quickly they are hard to capture pictures of .


  1. Wow, I have tried to get photos of the quail family, and it is so hard. Hot down here, had lots of wind earlier in the week, glad I'm not in the Australian Open Tennis!!! Haha! Cheers to all, Jean.

  2. great photos, they are always so very fast zipping about,

  3. Great pics, fun to see them with their chicks!

  4. Wow, what a treat to get some photos of these beautiful birds. Thank you for sharing these!!! Love the taste of summer when it only got up to 0 C today. :) Hey .. it's warmer than it was last week this time. And I get to enjoy your summer! :) Thank you!!
