I started on "Liberty 1776" clear back in 2012 and I worked on it the littlest bit last July. So I've pulled it out and it is going to be my WIP Wednesday project until I have it finished.
No new quail families to report.
While there are lots of young quail,
...they all belong to the co-parenting threesome.
Here you can see the adult male and female that co-parent with the single male.
Here's the single male.
I had a Great Blue Heron fly overhead. Not a wonderful shot, but proof that it happened.
There are still lots of young birds like this American Robin.
I also had a young Black-headed Cowbird show up for a visit.
I know some folks do not care for them, but as I rarely see them, I think it is a treat.
And she agrees!
Back to baby quail.
These two climbed up a blackberry vone to enjoy the morning sun.
This group is developing their top-knots.
It won't be long now before I am able to tell the males from the females.
On a recent walk I came across a group of several Bushtits.
They are always a delight.
