For many years the the Cape Verde and Cory’s Shearwater were viewed as one, but after extensive research, many differences between the two have been identified. As these two groups are often found together, it is clear that the Cape Verde Shearwater is significantly smaller than his counterpart, with a lighter build and with darker plumage and much darker coloring of the head. Their bills also differ, in that the Cape Verde has a lighter bill and is gray horn colored, on closer inspection.

If you ever happen to see one, you will find that Mountain Quail (Oreortyx pictus) are very attractive birds. Commonly found in densely wooded foothills and mountains along the West Coast of the US, these birds are somewhat unique in that they migrate up and down the slopes of the mountains according to the seasons. They are the only bird in the Quail family to perform some form of seasonal migration.
