Moving Quail and Natural Beauty

Moving Quail to the Sanctuary

The weather was fantastic Sunday so I decided to move the Quail into their new home.  Catching them turned into a sport as I sifted through the tall grass to find them.

To my surprise I had nine quail instead of eight.  I used the cat carrier to gather them up and off to the garden we went.

They seemed pretty stressed and not very interested in leaving the carrier.  After a little nudge they slowly walked out one by one, almost in a line and then scattered towards the grass.

I quickly realized this new home will be an adjustment.  In a couple days these birds will figure out where they landed and I do believe they will love it here.  Many bugs await their attention and new friends will be arriving soon.

This little cutie seemed to be the leader and the curious one; it went around investigating everything while cruising through the piles of intertwined wood.  Their instincts are fantastic and before I knew it they were all covered by grass blending in their new environment.

It’s my hope that over the next few months I can enjoy the natural beauty around me.  The majority of my inspiration is gathered from my surroundings, it’s a blessing to see so much beyond what I ever thought possible.

    They look so sweet. I'm sure they'll love their new digs. Thank you for sharing on this week's Maple Hill Hop.

    1. They are loving their new digs – Today I went out and checked in on them and a couple decided to fly. Loving it really is going to be wonderful to have them nest to the garden.
