Quail Dad “talking” to one of his offspring, as photographed by Siegfried Matull.

Siegfried and Gretel Matull were enjoying watching birds in their garden at The Sea Ranch, including several families of Quail. Siegfried wrote, “Unexpectedly a father Quail and one of his young kids came flying onto one of our driftwood planters, right in front of us. They were only three yards away and totally ignored us, staying for about five minutes. From time to time the father was ‘talking’ to his kid, like giving him advice."

Siegfried said further, "This nature encounter created a beautiful feeling for us. We are really so blessed to live in this Mendonoma nature paradise!”

Thanks to Siegfried for allowing me to share his fun photo with you here.
