San Diego Safari Park (Escondido, CA)
Day 2 RV-ing: Today we seek out a specialist to get a tow bar and InvisiBrake® by Roadmaster installed for our Gulfstream Montaj 29H to Mini Cooper. They’ll need our vehicles all day. How to pass the time? A day at San Diego Safari Park with Billy Jr. where we really enjoy the Ring-tailed Lemur Walk and Pygmy Falcon encounter.

Weaver Bird Hanging Nest
Weaver Birds are the craftiest birds around! Male weavers are so romantic and take me back to that nostalgic era where the men provide that white picket fence, secure home and warm house. Yup, the better builder brings home the girl!
"There are an incredible 57 species of weavers and all have their own styles and strategies for building elaborate nests, but no matter the various styles or materials used, all are mind-blowing." –TreeHugger
For its size, the pygmy falcon is a fairly powerful predator.
