California Quail Dreamin'

The California Quail is the latest bird to be cutified as a Birdorable. This beautiful bird, the state bird of California, lives on the west coast of North America and can be found from British Columbia southward to Baja California. The forward-drooping plume looks like a single feather, but it is actually made of six feathers. Check out our Birdorable version of this totally cute bird.
