California quail
15

California quails are mostly ignored by birders in the St. Francisco bay area ...simply because they are very common there. But hey come on...how can you ignore such a beauty. In fact they are among my favorite quails. We were conducting a study on Icterides (New world blackbirds) when I came across this male just coming down from the roost -which was high up in the canopy of tall tree. The light was far from being good but flash saved the day. My wife had to hold the flash to bounce it a bit better with the directon of the natural light and to avoid any cross shadows.
