I thought you might be interested in this. On Monday, April 20, we spotted an unusual visitor to Coalmont. This lovely California Quail spent well over an hour perched on some brush in our little community.
It is extremely unusual to see them around here. It certainly is the first one we have seen here during our 6 years in Coalmont. Many long-timers we have talked to say they have never seen or heard of one in the Tulameen/Coalmont/Princeton area. We don’t know if he has decided to stay in the area, or if he has any other friends or family with him, but we would be thrilled if he decided to make Coalmont his home.
Hopefully others will get to see him, and find that he has set up housekeeping here. He would be a welcome neighbour, in our opinion.
