Deer, Hawks and a Cat Skull, 08-18-18

I got up around 6:00 am and went over to the Effie Yeaw Nature Preserve again.  There wasn’t a lot going on there today, but I did see a few Red-Shouldered Hawks and a mama Columbian Black-Tailed deer and her fawns.  Actually, I saw the fawns before I saw their mother. They walked up onto the trail a few feet in front of me, and then “froze” when they saw me, so I was able to get a few photos of them. When mom approached, the kids went bouncing off into the woods. I got video of them doing that. And then mom sauntered after them.  Hah! I walked for about three hours and then headed home.
