Upland Birds

California Quail

Avila Guided Hunts offers fully guided hunts for California Quail. The California State bird is popular among hunters. These birds generally can be spotted in coastal sagebrush, chaparral and occasionally oak trees. With our land management we have created numerous water resources for our wildlife. In addition, to natural springs located on the property. 

 

You'll normally see California Quail walking, running or scratching at the ground and leaf litter for seeds and other food. Generally they will forage in open areas but stay close to cover. California Quail form flocks known as coveys in fall and winter; these usually contain family groups and can number more than 75 individuals. They roost in trees and feed mainly in the morning and evening, which is when hunting is best. 

California Dove

Avila Guided Hunts offer fully guided hunts for California Dove. There are two different species of dove in California: Mourning Dove and White-winged Dove. On our ranch we have the Mourning Dove and Eurasian Collared Dove. With our land management we have created numerous water resources for our wildlife. In addition, to natural springs located on the property. 

Mourning Doves often match their open-country surroundings. They're delicate drown to buffy-tan overall, with black spots on the wings and black-bordered white tips to the tail feathers. This dove is the most widespread and abundant game bird in North America.
