I haven't mentioned this before, but I've seen quite a few quail in my backyard and on the Jordan River path. The quail are still sticking together as families, and it is interesting to see them all at once.
A couple of weeks ago, I saw a blow snake on the path. It was a young snake and went into the bushes after I lightly tapped it with my shoe. It was finger-size in size and about 15 inches or so in length.
