walking to my door this morning, what do I almost step on? An injured Quail!

Just thought I'd share my random morning with you! So, when I got home from dropping B off at school, I was walking to my front door and I see a bird sitting on the walk. My first thought was that my neighbor was playing a joke on me and it was fake. As I got closer, I realized it was a real Quail with a cut on his belly. So, my neighbor calls the vet, they said to call the police! So, the police call the game warden and he's on his way over to help the poor bird. Living in rural Vermont, who knows when he will show up, so I'm sitting outside with my computer and some hot coffee freezing my butt off waiting for him!

After resting in the box for about an hour, he flew away! So, hopefully he'll be ok, he flew well so that's a good sign. No, the game warden hadn't showed up yet so we called and said not to come.

[MENTION=410]Telly03[/MENTION] I would agree 100%, quail is very tasty!! I can assume you are hunter (or were) or you know someone that is because I don't know how else you would have had quail! I never see it sold anywhere. My boyfriend hunts (duck, dove & quail) so I've had it alot and love it. They are really pretty birds though too. I hope it is ok!

I checked the neighbors yard that he flew into and couldn't find him, so I'm thinking he just need a little rest and is gonna be ok!

[MENTION=574]TessaAndSamson[/MENTION] I've eaten them, but never killed one. I grew up in Cali, lots of Quail and Pheasant = very tasty. I also found it in a restaurant in Baltimore... I can't remember the name, but remember that it was tasty. I would have done the same thing though, your feeding your soul by helping the bird which is more satisfying and better for you than feeding your belly. Oh boy, I'm going soft... I better go watch some football or MMA fighting. :)
