Of all the types of birds in the whole wide world, I really do believe that quails are my absolute favourite (I love quails so much I even dedicated a Pinterest board to them). There's just something about their plump bodies, wee little legs, swooping forehead plume, and gentle faces that makes me fall in love with them - oh, and don't even get me started on the ridiculously adorable way they hightail it across the road en mass.
Adoring quails as I do then, you can imagine my sheer delight when, recently, I was contacted by an enchantingly lovely online magazine called Quail Bell who wanted to interview me. While this beautiful publication - which delves into topics ranging from history to poetry, fashion to art - is not devoted specificly to ornithological topics, it's name (and the website header) includes quail in it and thus I took this to be a very, very good sign.
The lovely lady who contacted me was as friendly as could be and sent a series of questions my way which I set to work answering asap, as I was especially taken by the obvious thought that had gone into them. I knew right away that she had read through back posts, static pages, and even used online searches about me to put together the intelligent questions she poised.
Very shortly after I sent my responses her way, she wrote back to let me know that the interview had gone live on the Quail Bell website last Tuesday, complete with what has to be one the absolute nicest introductions I've ever received in my whole life. You can hop (or scamper like a cute quail, if you prefer) over to Quail Bell to read the interview, called Beyond the FAQs, here.
Further demonstrating the thought and research that went into this piece, the interviewer did a marvelous job of partnering various photos of me with my answers throughout the post, and I was deeply touched by the attention to detail and quality of this interview.
Thank you very much, Quail Bell, for including me on your resplendent, soulful, creative website. It was an honour and pleasure of the highest calibre.
