A group of quail can be a queer, a covey, a flock, or a bevy. These quiet quail are sculpture at the beautiful Tohono Chul Park, a wonderful place to refresh yourself with art, greenery, and a tea room, too! Photo courtesy of Ken Wilcox.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
