Guess the species and win a free book
« on: April 12, 2021, 11:00:36 AM »
I have decided to run a little contest, to see how well everyone knows their wildlife.  The first one to get the correct species will win a choice of any of my seven books (Operation Cody, Poaching Spree, To Protect a Predator, A Falcon's Tale, Lethal Removal, Deep Trouble, or For Your Protection).  The book will be endorsed to you and mailed to your home.

So, for the first animal, tell me what species this is:

 :chuckle:  I would have been faster but my fat fingers require backspacing when I try to type too fast.

One of the few birds my grandfather never let us shoot.  There were always a few bunches ranging around on the mountain (California and Mountain Quail).  My grandfather always said that it was never worth killing a beautiful songbird that provided such little meat. 


I later found out that although there isn't as much met they were delicious!  Haven't seen any Mountain Quail in quite some time but the California Quail are still around

Mountain Quail it is.  If bearhunter99 and TooTallMike will each send me a PM with your name, address and which book you want, I will send each of you the book of your choosing.  I think 6 seconds is virtually a tie. 
Hope you enjoy the books.
