Natural wonder: Baby quail are out

They are miniscule. Baby quail have been out for about a week now in parts of the Boise Foothills.

I spotted some last week but had these tiny critters come through the yard today (June 5).

The pair of adult quail that came through had about five chicks with them.

Watch out while driving. They're fast but sometimes they don't know where to go when crossing the street. They also have a hard time jumping the curb.
