California Quail

Finally a winner for the World’s Worst Bird Photo Contest—there is a California Quail somewhere in this photo—like just about near the center you might see a pale line that runs down the bird’s back. Four quail scurried about the brambles on 31 December 2020 along the Chehalis Bike Trail. One them occasionally called, and I, for once, had the wherewithal to whip out my cell phone and record it: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/292939261. I used the Android app, BirdNet, which can often identify the recordings you make with it. (They say an iOS version is also available.) If you attach these recordings to eBird lists, the files are stored at Cornell’s Macaulay Library.
