California Quail

A  L  O  H  A !
"The song-birds leave us 
at the summer's close, 
Only the empty nests 
are left behind.
 And pipings of the quail 
among the sheaves."
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"Every new beginning 
comes from some 
other beginning's end."

A Bevy of Quail!
"Deer walk upon our mountains,and quail 
Whistle about us their spontaneous cries; 
Sweet berries ripen in the wilderness; 
And, in the isolation of the sky , 
At evening, casual flocks of pigeons make 
Ambiguous undulations as they sink, 
Downward to darkness, on extended wings."
                      Wallace Stevens

More group names for birds

"We are very good judges 
for the mistakes of others, 
but very good defense lawyers 
for our own mistakes.
