Nice shot, it looks to be a Quail of some sort, maybe a Gambels Quail?

A quail it is, but it is a California Quail, the state bird of California. Nice shot of a handsome fellow, perfectly posed.

Well, weCalifornians do get around. Birds pay no attention to political borders - these range from BC to BC (Baja California to British Columbia) and east into Nevada, Utah, and Idaho. Either they don't have enough sense to stay at home, or they have better sense - take your choice. :roll:
