I'm thinking these will be my next two projects. The Bent Creek first, then the JBW Designs owl. I need to find the linen and the threads, but I think I have everything in my stash.
The California Quail seem to have sorted out the deer fence with no issues. I was extremely concerned about them as they are ground birds, but also fly low and extremely fast going between the front and back of the house.
As you can see, I still have a young chick...
This quail is preening.
She's a fairly young bird.
I often see anywhere from 35-50 birds. There's a group of 13-15 that are noticeably younger than my other quail.
