I might be close to a personal record for "smalls" finishes in a month! I'm rocking on my August themed stitches.

The California Quail are my End of August birds, hands down.

While some of the smaller families I used to see are no longer around, my Big Family of two males and 40+ kids wanders around the backyard several times a day.  

The bunnies and the quail get along fine.

This young female photobombed the bunny just behind her.

Here's another young female quail.

She came up on the patio - not a good thing with Padma and Parvati  hanging out there.  And can you see who she has tucked in behind her? 

A very young chick!

The two birds appeared to be alone.
So a single mom raising a lone chick.
I hope they both make it, it's tough to parent without assistance.

I love the quails and so nice to see that very young one. Fingers crossed they make out okay. Hard to believe another month is drawing to a close!
