On this blogger site one can click on all pictures except for the header two times each time making them larger which is a feature I like because it gives you the ability to really look very close at all kinds of things not readily seen.

Visitors

Knocking on the door. (click on the pictures) (twice)
Nobody home - let's move on boys and girls.

Stretch was resting.

From just  a bit ago. Quail are cool little birds as well. First time I've seen them here. There is also nearby a family or two of burrowing owls. No way can I even get an illustrative picture of these birds. Their flight is something to see.

I hope the quail come back a bunch more.

  1. Are these Dan Quail? If so, can they spell 'potatoe' correctly?

  3. I always loved seeing the families of quail that visited my patio in SF. One spring there were 15 little fuzzballs no bigger than a golf ball. They're such fun to watch.

    Stretch is looking pretty comfy there.

  4. As they say some places - life is too sweet!

    There were at least 25 of these and a couple limpers as well.

    1. For Stretch that is. Looks like she's gonna knock down at least 12 straight without moving much.

  6. I need to post on ring necked doves TMoon. They are an invasive species and there is no limit and no season. A couple of us are looking at them as a food source and other should as well. You do not see turtle doves around buildings anymore. I find the newcomers songs to be very abrasive compared to the soothing sounds from a turtle dove.
