California Quail in winter shelter

On the same day I saw the Bluebirds and Waxwings feeding on Juniper berries, I also saw another bird species making use of a Juniper tree, but this time for shelter from a wind blowing in 25 degree temps. This pair of California Quail was huddled together about 20 ft. high above a residential street in Bend.
