  • [Pictures] 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!

There are just things that you need to talk to other women with. You may have the best relationship in the world with your husband, but there are just times you need your girlfriends. It makes for a healthier and happier you which makes everything else you do better.

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

                      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.

                            Excellent! I'll give it a try in the very near future. I hadn't heard about it either!
