You’ve Got Quail

When we feed the Guinnea fowl we also throw some food to the wild Gamble Quail as well. I like to feed the wild quail mostly in the winter when their natural food supply is at a low. As spring and summer roll around, the quail become less noticeable and tend to depend less on what little I may throw them. Not only do the quail partake of the feed, but there are doves and pesky ground squirrels and sparrows too. Once in a while a Red Tail Hawk may fly over and suddenly all of the birds and squirrels disappear, only to return again after the danger has passed.
