    Quail

    We feed the birds daily and I decided that would be a good opportunity for practice. Got both male and female quail.

    Good eye! I think all we have here in southern AZ is Gambel's, not sure I've ever seen any of the others. Maybe some Mountain Quail

    I had to pull out my trusty "Western Birds" book, looks like California quails are almost the same but with slightly muted colors and more copper on their chests rather than their sides. What do you typically get in Utah?

    we get mostly California up north, and gambels down south. I don't see a whole lot in my area normally.
