Instagram – While I was perched up on a park bench photographing the race cars this morning, I heard this chirping below me which had me look down, only to see a glimpse of a black bobbing figure dashing way from me. I followed the sight of the bobbing head feather into the field, to find this little male California Quail perched on a wild sage bush, where he kept a lookout. We realised after sighting two females running about, that they got separated while trying to make it up this part of the field, cutting through our parked cars. They were reunited after the race cars finished the round.
