California quail were absent from our yard for years, but have made a comeback over the past 2-3 years. It’s delightful to hear the “Chicago” calls again.

Dear John & Sandy:
Five years ago I don’t think you could spot a quail anywhere in town. I think the cats got a lot of them. Now … I probably get 4-5 reports a month saying quail have returned to local backyards. I wonder if this is an indicator that the feral cat population is down?
Isn’t it great to see all these quail? Beautiful birds!
Any other quail out there in never-never land? /Gary
