One of my favorite locations for photographing birds is the Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary. It is tucked near the foot of the Modjeska Peak and adjacent to the Cleveland National Forest in Silverado, CA.
Many species of birds can be found at the sanctuary and I have taken photos of the Western Scrub Jay as shown above. I recorded one of my visits on a video in YouTube titled, Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary- Sep. 2018
The sanctuary can be found at 29322 Modjeska Canyon, Silverado, CA 92676. See map as shown.
