NEW: Quail Covey

Quail like Coyote had nearly disappeared from Crest Canyon after it was opened to all for trail walking. Many people still let their dogs off-leash, and they disturb dens, nests and denizens of the chaparral. Quail unlike Coyote have had a resurgence, and during my walk today off San Dieguito Drive ... this covey of Quail came over to us, and perched within spitting distance. I almost couldn't use my full telephoto because they were so close!    Photo © Paul Haydu
