Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author of "Cool Creatures, Hot Planet," "Endangered Edens," and "Time Is Irreverent."

California Quail

Marty’s photo of the day #1471: It’s “Animals A thru Z Month.” Each day in June, I will post an animal I’ve photographed—somewhere in the world—in alphabetical order.

Q is for Quail. This California quail hung out near my house last summer. Of all the birds that live near me, these are the most exotic-looking. I’d expect to see a bird like this in New Guinea, not Montana. Although quail fly quite well, they are reluctant flyers and will often run away when panicked.
