They’re Not Fighting … Yet

For the last few days I have seen two bucks in out back yard, (still) grazing amiably side by side. So, I conclude, they’re not (yet) in rut as I assume they would fight each other then. Once in a … Continue reading

This evening, just a few minutes ago, we saw this fairly young fawn in our backyard: Das ist aber mal ein später Nachkömmling! Heute Abend, gerade vor ein paar Minuten, haben wir dieses relativ junge Rehkitz in unserem Garten gesehen: … Continue reading
