Deer in the Manchaug Watershed

Late yesterday afternoon, the doe and three fawns often seen this spring and summer in Area 3 were grazing on the lawn of the YMCA Camp Blanchard. The young are now about the size of their mother.

A bit of lightening up of the photos …

Neighbors report up to 7 deers grazing and eating acorns in their yards as well as a buck rubbing his horns on the branches of smaller landscape trees.

Across the lake, roadside walkers in the watershed are seen wearing their hunter orange.
