Then we came home and the kids helped dad clean the garage. They did a good job but not before a couple of interruptions from another family celebrating father's day nestled in our driveway's lavender bushes. If you have as many quail in your neck of the woods as we do, you know their song is not necessarily the quietest or melodious. It did not take my kids long to find their nest a couple of feet away from where they were hard at work. Here is a California Quail pair and one of their chicks.
The morning couldn't be complete without dad showing our four year old how to be gentle with his little friend:
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY
