California Quail

One of the more endearingly quaint birds which I have round The Cottage are the California Quails. They scurry around the ground at a great speed and are not easy to photograph unless you have a long focus lens and a sunny day. Get too near and they fly off at a considerable speed. Oddly (I say oddly but it may not be so I'm not really sure why I said it) this is the first time that I've seen one in a tree.

  1. That's exciting, if you can't recall seeing one in a tree before and now you have your very own picture of this ;o). It's quite an exciting bird to look at anyway, for me.
