California Quail Callipepla californica

Introduced from southwestern United States. In Kittitas County, common and widespread in most habitats below lower tree line, though less common and local in pure grasslands and undisturbed shrub-steppe. Fairly common, but local, in open lowland landscapes of Puget Trough counties; especially widespread on Whidbey Island but scarce on Camano Island (no BBA records). Found chiefly about shrubby edges, farmlands, riparian shrubs, residential areas, and city parks.
