The Next Generation

We’re starting to see lots of fawns now as well as other little ones.  Here’s one of two little gray foxes that were denned near the road. P1110667 This was the last day I saw the robins in the nest.  They’re out fending for themselves now.P1110621These turtles didn’t make it.  I know I’ve showed you lots of pictures of turtles laying eggs, but this is what happens to many of them.  Raccoons dig them up and all that’s left are the shells.P1110693P1110692Here is a mother grouse and if you look real close you can see a couple little ones.  Hint:  see the stick in the left corner?  To the right of it are dark spots that are the tail feathers of the little birds.grouse with little ones...tower fire rd We’ve driven by this nest many times and I just noticed it.  It’s some type of young hawk.hawk nest on empire-2And finally last night the little doe and her new fawn came to visit.  This picture is from the trail cam.  Much better than the ones I took through 3 panes of glass.  PICT0277On the other cam, we saw this future “monster buck”.  He’ll need a few years, but they all start small.
