California Quail

California Quail
Photographed in the area of Medical Lake, Washington, this bird is one I've tried many times to photograph and failed. The California Quail or Valley Quail, Callipepla californica, is very common in eastern Washington and is the state bird of California. They tend to run rather than fly and that makes them difficult to photograph.
