And the nominee for the best gallinaceous Father is….


The California quail!!  Dr. Jennifer Gee nominates these hard-working males and I second the nomination–while they might not actually be genetic dads to the babes running around their feet–they sure put their energy towards parenting one and all.

California quail did not make the National Wildlife Federations list of best dads but they should have.  Next time you see a California quail working his feathery ass off, give him the respect he deserves.
