About the Bird Art:
The image is printed on Epson Premium Matte Paper with UltraChrome Ink; the color should last quite a long time. The print is then mounted on a cradled wood block and coated with a UV resistant protectant to prevent fading. Each block is signed on the back. Ready to hang from a sawtooth hanger attached to the back. Watermarks will not appear on print. Color may vary (based on your monitor settings).

This listing is for a limited edition, fine art print of my original painting of a California Quail called, “When a Single Second Feels Like a Century.”
One afternoon, I saw a plump shape scoot across my backyard, accompanied by some silly sounds. I looked up and there was a whole flock darting around the yard. What a treat!
Bird in a Box subscribers: this is the bird for April 2020.
About the California Quail
- Pairs of California Quail call antiphonally, meaning that the male and female alternate calls, fitting their calls into a tightly orchestrated pattern.
- The California Quail’s head plume, or topknot, looks like a single feather, but it is actually a cluster of six overlapping feathers.
- California Quail nests can contain as many as 28 eggs. These large clutches may be the result of females laying eggs in nests other than their own, a behavior known as “egg-dumping.”
- As an adaptation to living in arid environments, California Quails can often get by without water, acquiring their moisture from insects and succulent vegetation. During periods of sustained heat they must find drinking water to survive.
