Fine art illustration of a California Quail (Callipepla californica.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The California Quail was completed on 2.02.10. Often when I’m hiking in the Bay Area I come across these birds. Occasionally it’s hard not to! The males often sit in prominent places – such as the top of a fence post – and call out loudly. Or perhaps I just catch a glimpse of a family as they trot out from one side of the road to another disappearing into the underbrush. The drawing is based on a photo by ‘Photo Patty’
