Last night I was picking blueberries and looked over when I heard a quail making quite a racket. There he stood on guard while his partner was scratching around at the cracked corn the farmer threw out that morning. Look to the left and see the black cat just giving herself a bath and ignoring the bird. This is not our cat, in fact she is wild (I know it is a she because she has a baby kitten under the chicken house). She won't let us get anywhere near her so I am amazed she did not go after this quail. But even more amazed that the quail just stood his ground.
