I’m starting to get more and more reports of California quail parents bringing their babies into local backyards these days. Ten years ago, there was hardly a quail to be found, I suspect because feral cats were killing them.
I’m also getting email from more and more people who say they’re seeing coyotes near their homes. I wonder if the coyotes are thinning out the feral cat population, which, in turn, is allowing the quail population to increase?
Time will tell, I guess. Interesting. /Gary
