On a morning in March 2009 I looked out our front window and in the next door neighbor’s yard stood the Doe you see above. She was partially hidden by the tree, which by the way is no longer there, and seemed completely oblivious to the fact she was standing in the middle of a neighborhood. She stayed a couple minutes longer before walking off through to the back yard and out onto the railorad tracks behind our home. (The railroad tracks have been replaced by a bicycle/ walking track as many of you know.) I believe I posted the image years ago and then lost it when my hard drive fried. Sorry the image is a bit fuzzy.
Since they installed the new track we seldom see any deer. There use to be lots of cover for them when the railroad tracks were still there but since their removal seeing a deer is very rare. They come up from our Nature Center once in a while. Once we had four Does in the front yard. Never got a picture of that group.
