Tom has grouse because his backyard includes a forest. My garden usually has Valley quail but not so much last year and I've seen none out there in 2015. There really seem to be more Sharp-shinned hawks around and I wonder if that explains it.
I learned that quail like ripe tomatoes. Their cousins, the Ring-neck pheasants like lettuce and to dust bathe in seed beds! <insert smiley throwing his hands in the air and going, "Gah!"> The neighbor ran a turkey off last year, for which I was much appreciative. Happy to have a flock of turkeys coming through a garden??! I don't think so ...
Dusky grouse aren't likely to come down into our gardens but I find the migration of these birds intriguing. They move down into the valleys in the spring to breed and raise their young. Then, they move higher in the mountains in the winter to feed on the needles of evergreens! Imagine making that choice for your winter home.
