Bumble-bee Sized Quail Chicks!

Yesterday a pair of NZ Pipits came up our drive and almost in the front door! They were accompanied by a pair of Californian Quail.

We have a number of quail around the garden at present and just a couple of days ago Dougal spotted a family with about 12 chicks in tow. He described then as being like bumble-bees – they are about that small.
