The Quail, for the Mayan, had much to do with our
star. Now while all Quail don't look exactly alike they do share a
certain set of characteristics, one of which is what I'd call a sort of
wide eyed optimism coupled with a potential for nervous energy.
You can see them, sometimes peaceful about their business, sometimes
considering the possibility of flight, and sometimes experiencing an
intense panic. However, it would be difficult to think of a Quail as
experiencing moments of depression that requires them to sit and stare
at a wall for hours on end. They are kind of like Finches that way.
course it's a thoroughly subjective approach to the
characteristics and personality of birds that I share with
the Mayans. Leaps of imagination so vast they might even be
considered eccentric, but I will say of Quail I do not think
of them as Scrabble Playing. It's all very well for the Blue
Bird to play chess, but Quail in my view would be good at at
the old game of pick-a-sticks. It's a game that requires
agility of mind and body, involves huge tension, moments of
intense happiness, and often remorse. Kind of like the Sun.
