Donna Stephens described the following experience as "just another beautiful part of our neighborhood":
"Wednesday morning while driving the rolling hills of the Newmanista Vista Bonita, I had to come to a quick stop as these quail were walking across the street heading for the shelter of the cactus and it's red fruit. I sat for several minutes watching the lead bird guide the youngster as they picked at the cactus fruit and climbed to the top of the wildscape towards Mayfield. I drove up the hill and there that little fellow stood tall and proud on the curb. I was able to get off a couple of shots before they all flew off. It seemed there were several of them hiding. I was too slow and missed the flight of the quail."
