This morning, I did my usual walk from the bus station in downtown Springfield to my work on South A St. Typically there's not many birds on South A proper, and I focus on listening/watching for birds south of the railroad tracks (along the new Mill Race Bike Path). But today I had a fun surprise right on South A. As I was walking under the red decorative plum trees, I heard a sputtering about 12-15 feet up. Out flushed a California Quail, then several more, until 17 in all popped out of the tree. This is a high count for my work neighborhood list.
