June 21st- 24th, 2012-I Now Have Two Fawns!

I haven't seen the fawn with it's mom since the 18th. So this morning at 7 am I'm watching out the window and there comes the Doe out of the woods and wanders over. I thought she was alone at first like she's been for the past few days. Then all of sudden I see the fawn Then when the mom walked back a little ways I noticed another fawn. There are two! Now I know she couldn't ahve been pregnant when I thought she was. She would have been much bigger. She's just a healthy doe I guess. And she eats a lot to keep her strength up while she's nursing.
I watched the fawns running and jumping and was trying my best to get video of them. It sure was hard going from one room to another with my walker. But I did manage to get some video and a few pictures. They are dark because the sun hadn't hit my area yet. I'm hoping to see them in the evening or during the day when the sun is out. The colors are so much nicer.

 The female looks tired, which leads me to believe she does have babies in those woods.
 Daddy and mommy
 One of the baby woodchucks who was living out back that I never got to see.
Still no baby foxes. :(  I am adding some pics of the adult foxes though. They are still around every day.
 He still waits for me.
 The doe is over in those thick bushes. She was out every day but I never saw the fawn after the 18th.
A Northern Flicker out back
 The Doe on the 21st.

 This made me nervous. A lady down the hall threw out some apples and now the deer comes too close to the building. If it ever gets spooked while it's between the building and rock wall it could run the wrong way to the dead end and try going up the rock wall. I'm so afraid because if she ever did that her hooves would get caught in the wire fencing and she could break a leg. I only throw nuts or apples up over the wall so she will stay away from the building. That pissed me off.

A Blujay sunning itself.
 The doe and her two fawns on the 24th.

These pictures are clips taken off my video so they are not very good. I hope to get some good shots soon of them both together.
