A new birdie visited our yard

This birdie visited our yard yesterday. Mom  said it's a California Quail. We've heard that quail are tasty but we didn't want to eat him because he's so cute. And we couldn't have eaten him anyway because we aren't allowed out of the house and he's too fast for us to catch. Look at the big feathery plume on top of his head. It makes him look very proud and distinguished. I hope he comes back to amuse me. Maybe if mom puts some bird seed on the ground he will bring his family for a visit so I can see a mom quail and some little ones.
