Big Bird

And, it has four legs!
 In the Winter I have many deer that come to my feeder, but, for the past two summers, only this young buck and another, have come in to scrounge for food.
I think that these two are two that came with their mothers a few years ago.  There were two does, and each doe had a fawn with her.  Those fawns played together in my yard while their mothers ate. I never see the mothers in the Summer any more.  But, now, I see two bucks at the feeder.  They often come together, which makes me think that they are the two fawns that grew up together.  Maybe fanciful, but I like to think it.

You are so fortunate to have these 4 leggers visiting you. You must live quite far from the city/town!

Don't know if we had deer get into the bird feeders... A squirrel or two, but no deer. Oh, and the one cat like to sleep on one of the flat feeders. But no deer. :)

How sweet. I bet he is the fawn all grown up.
I saw an antelope nursing a tiny baby today.
