I'm not sure if this says something good or bad about me. I was looking out my kitchen window and there was a quail family hanging out in my backyard. From where I stood, it looked like one of them was lying down funny with the others huddled around it. Thus, of course, I had to bang on the window frantically to scare the whole family away just to make sure the one lying all weird wasn't dead. Morbid, eh? Of course they all immediately got up and ran away. So I guess it's all good. Sleeping quail babies apparently just have odd posture.
I still pride myself on my wildlife-friendly garden (yeah baby!), the more I work out there, the more birds I see, which is nice. I still have a bird feeder that I am debating whether I should hang or not. The thing is, the quail like to have little dust baths in my flowerbeds and can make a huge mess, so while I'm not going to work that hard to deter them (I put rocks around one plant after they tried to squish it to death during said dust baths, that's about the extent of my efforts though), I don't really know that I want more. I swear, all my problems should be this bad ;)
