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.
