Our Sweet Baby!

About a week ago my husband, Charlie, was working out in our yard and happened to glance out to the meadow where our bluebird house is.

Some movement caught his eye so he took a closer look.

Can you see what he found out there? Here let me help you.

Can you see it now?

Yes! That’s correct a fawn! Out in the middle of the meadow all by itself.  Its mother had left it there while she went off to feed which is normal behavior.

I stood in our fenced in yard taking pictures of the fawn for about an hour and not once did it get up. It just sniffed the air, looked around and scratched some itches.  I was hoping to see mom come, but it was getting late for lunch.

I always love to see the new fawns born on our property every year. A few years ago we were lucky enough to have twins raised on our property. You can read and see videos of their adventures here and here.

A couple of days after we saw the fawn in the meadow, Charlie looked down from our bedroom window and saw this.

Our sweet baby was now laying among the evergreen shrubs in the front of the house.

Here is a far shot of the front of the house.  Our bedroom is on the right on the second floor and the fawn was directly below.

Here is a closer shot of where the fawn was. When we found it there it was early evening and as the sun went down the fawn was still there, but by morning the fawn was gone.

Now we are on full alert keeping our eyes peeled for new fawn sightings.  Where will the mom deer hide her baby next? I can’t wait to find out.
