First of all, they are adorable, and second of all, once you see a little family of quail scurrying across the street, you can’t help but love the way they dash forward, their heads down, string of babies following behind the parents… It’s a delight to find them in the city from time to time, although they do tend to be on the skittish side.

They inspired me to write this poem some time ago.
