San Diego Wild Animal Park (Day 6)

On our last day in San Diego, we went to the San Diego Wild Animal Park. While it was nice, Alexandra and I really preferred the Zoo.

One of the big things to do at the animal park is to take a bus tour. Unfortunately, it is a long walk to where you get on the bus. And, for the regular trip (you can pay a lot more money and do different types of trips) you don't get very close to the animals.

There is a lot more to do at the animal park besides the tour. This facility actually breeds animals for the zoo, so you will see a lot of the same animals. One of our favorite parts of this park was going in to feed the birds - Lory's. You are given a little cup of nectar and the birds will land on you to get the food. But, BEWARE! These animals have very quick digestive systems - if you know what I mean. I ended up getting "shot" twice!

I enjoyed taking photos of some birds around a pond.

And, Alexandra and I enjoyed the wild bird show the best. Isn't this a beautiful bird???

This was Alexandra's favorite bird - a parrot that talked and sang and made all kinds of noises. He was wonderful!

I had to laugh at your comment of the quick digestive system of the birds. Too funny! I love the photo of Alexandra holding the Lory's. Looks like y'all had a great time.

LOL! Isn't it amazing that they can train birds to do such cool stuff?
So, how was the tour? Did you feel like it was worth it?
