The California Valley Quail enjoys walking while resorting to flight when the situation calls for it. Here is a shot I took this week of a quail walking confidently on a coastal oak branch. Note how the bird blends in with the bark.
The California Valley Quail prefers to run rather than fly. At this time of year they crisscross roads in Carmel in the morning, seeking food and shelter in the underbrush.
