Sometimes when my person and I walk on the trails near dark we pass by the quail tree. This tree looks like any other tree, but when we get near it we hear lots of wing flapping and clucking and see quail flying everywhere.
If we didn’t startle those quail by walking by we wouldn’t even know they were there. They blend right in to the tree. I’m not sure why they fly away. Maybe they think we’re going to climb the tree and go after them.
Maybe the birds that fly away are the guard birds and they’re distracting us from other birds around the tree. Hey, I hadn’t thought of that. I’d better start checking around that tree. Maybe I’ll find some tasty morsels.
Oops – I just felt a yank on my leash. My person says no tasty morsels for me. At least not any quail flavored ones. I guess I’ll just have to drool – next time I pass that quail tree.
