  • California Quail (Callipepla californica) at Upper Bridgeport SP in Nevada County, CA

    Most of us have heard the “Chicago” call of the california quail perched on the top of a fencepost or bush.  You may have wandered through oak scrubland that has thick cover either as bushes or blackberry thickets and heard mysterious liquid, clicking “putting” noises and been mystified.  These are also vocalizations of the California quail.  I was able to record an extensive quail session in one of these thickets at the upper part of Bridgeport SP in Nevada County, CA on the morning of April 17, 2007.

    In the background one can hear in the order of appearance: mourning dove, wrentit, western kingbird, Bullock’s oriole, golden-crowned sparrow, and lesser goldfinch
