Gambel’s Quail

This winter a flock of Gambel’s Quail began making daily visits.  Quail are abundant on the chaparral covered slopes around here, but during the past 15 years, I have seen very few on the floodplain near the river.  The quail are coming for the birdseed I scatter for juncos, sparrows, finches, and dove.  I like quail.  They get along fine with the other birds, but they seem more stalwart than dove; more like robins.
