Bison, Elk and Dodo Birds....Oh my!!

A perfect day for the kids always includes a drive through Lone Elk Park and a visit to the Wild Bird Sanctuary. Lately, we have been going almost daily! The kids will wake up and say "look for animals, buffalo..and deer...and what else.....bird house....and water and trees and ....what else.....mama coffee"!




Look, a little cage for the kids when they are naughty! They like it!



Here are some cranes. There are all sorts of birds here including vultures, bald headed eagles and owls. All of the birds at the sanctuary have been injured and are being rehabbed.

Look, a lone elk!


Bison!!


Check out this video. It was bison mating season and the animals were getting a little too close for comfort....
