    Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary

    Sunnygirl and I took a trip to the Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary this past week. For those who've never heard of it, it's a small little wildlife sanctuary hidden in Modjeska Canyon. Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary

    not just a bird sanctuary, it's got squirrels too. We were told, bobcats aren't uncommon as well.


    not your everyday pigeon, this one is a band-tailed pigeon


    we were short on time, so that's all from the Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary for now, but there will be future updates.

    And since I had no where else to put it, here's a young red-shouldered hawk in Irvine.

    Great pictures! Although we didn't spend a whole lot of time there, I really enjoyed myself. I love the nature stuff!

    I was pretty excited about the scrub jay and the band tailed pigeon, those are two I'd never seen before and it was quite a treat!

    I've been to the Animal Kingdom, but back in 2000. I know the girls will go crazy there.

    Re: Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary

    Wonderful pictures, thanks for sharing. That last one is my favorite, but the sanctuary looks really gorgeous and relaxing. Perfect place to go for a walk and take a few pics!

    I'm not sure if we have anything around here about this, but you've convinced me to go look.
