Sauvie Island Wildlife Area, along Oak Island Road, NW of Portland, Oregon.
California quail adult and young
Nest fell from rafter in barn, parent not found in area. Taken to shelter in Calabasas.
Picture sadly obscured; I both saw and heard it clearly, but there was too much in the way for my poor camera to comprehend.
Male and female crossed the road in front of us. We got really good looks at them.
