tiny quail

Since I've been in Yakima, I've been hoping that the quail chicks would hatch before we left town. The day before we leave, they arrived! They're so tiny, fluffy, and squeaky. They're certainly not ready to fly yet or jump very high, so they can't get onto the wall yet like momma and poppa can. But I can tell they're trying to teach them!

The pictures aren't very good, but you can see the chicks underneath that looming pink flamingo, dutifully following and peeping along the way.



Proud parents watching over their young.



Unfortunately, I won't be able to watch them grow up. At least I got a chance to see them!
