With precious little to choose from for this letter, we ended up with a quail. Well, to be more accurate, we ended up with a quail’s head as that’s all I could manage in my short time frame. It’s Friday night, so I’m squeezing in this little entry before starting the evening. Hope all of you are having a wonderful Friday evening and are gearing up for a great weekend ahead!
As it turns out, quails are not the most interesting creatures, at least based on my further reduced two minutes of research. They are omnivores. Their staple diet is seeds, though they also consume insects and fruit. Quails spend the majority of time on the ground because they can’t really fly long distances. Knowing that they sort of suck at flying, they’ll choose to run from predators as a first impulse. Their coloring is a form of camouflage to hopefully avoid the need to run altogether.
And thus ends my haphazardly acquired knowledge of quails. There was a bit about laying 10 to 20 eggs at a time, which I guess is rather a lot, but overall I wasn’t super interested in quails. Apologies to quail lovers everywhere! Next up is “R,” which has a few more possibilities, so if you have a suggestion, please let me know in the comments!
