The Quail Connection


I have always had a soft spot for quail....Bobwhites that is. First of all when I was a kid, I loved Trixie Belden books. And the kids therein called their club the Bobwhites.

And then there was the time we lived just down the road from here and there were Bobwhites all around and they would whistle back to us, "Bob-bob White!"

And....now there are quail in my dining room. Tiny, itty bitty teeny weeny quail that just hatched in the incubator.

They make noises like squeaky machines.

They are not Bobwhites, but rather Coturnix, but still......

Tina, I hadn't either. They are SO small! And cute. About the size of a walnut.
