California Quail in an Apple Tree

Posted by Picasa
You know how the song the Twelve Days of Christmas has a partridge in a Pear Tree?

Well, I don't have one of those for you but I do have a Flock of Quail in an Apple Tree.
They are hidden pretty well so it might be hard to see them. I know when I looked out the window they sure surprised me and then brought a smile to my face.
They seemed convinced that I couldn't see them there.

It's hard to believe that this is the last post and photo for 2011.

I wish health, happiness and prosperity for all of you in 2012
Thank you for your interesting posts this year.
I am blessed to have met all of you and thank you for your comments.
I appreciate it very much


  1. Such a lovely image. I sometimes see Quail running along the country roads.
    They are such sweet birds.

    Tku.....It is a pleasure getting to know you.
    I have loved viewing your artwork, for me, that has been an absolute pleasure.

    Happy 2012, may it hold all your dreams and more.....

  2. You are blessed; we haven't had quail here for forty years! Hope you have a grand new year!

  3. Carole, yes I could see the quail and hope they do stay hidden from any hunters. Best wishes to you and your family for a wonderful New Year. I have enjoyed reading your blog posts and seeing your beautiful art and wish you continued success. Thanks for sharing your talents here. And,thank you for your comments on our blog posts we well. See you in 2012.

  4. This is a new kind of bird for me. I wonder if there's any similar birds where I live. Have a Happy New Year!

  5. oh, that is so neat! i think they are such beautiful birds, and you get a whole tree full! :)

    happy new year to you, as well!!! blessings be yours (beginning with tomorrow!)

  6. Carole, That is a great photo! I have never seen an Quail much less a tree full of them.:)

    Happy New Year to you and are family!!!

  7. they do blend in to their surroundings pretty good there.
    Happy New Year

  8. What a lovely picture! They certainly are quite well disguised in the apple tree! I wonder if they're like toddlers who think that if they cover their eyes so that they can't see you, you can't see them either?

    Thank you for all your interesting posts and fascinating images this year, Carole, and I very much hope that 2012 will be a happy and healthy one and bring you all the success in the world!

  9. How cool! I don't know if there are any quail where I live in Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, the only quail I've ever seen became the vice president of the United States a few years ago but I guess that that Dan Quayle doesn't actually count. They sure are beautiful birds, though. Happy New Year!
