Driving through Connestee Falls (our neighborhood) has its challenges at times. The windy, steep roads that find their way through the forest can be intimidating at times but if you take your time and stay alert it all works out.
However, now we have yet another hazard. Baby fawns are popping up (out) all over the place and they certainly don’t have street sense yet so it is very important to be aware when driving that there might be some tiny creatures wandering around. Some kind soul put up a bunch of these signs in our development and I love it.
No babies have appeared in our yard yet but usually the one mama has hers on the “island” in back of our house and when it is older and can swim brings it over. I can’t wait to see those little spotted newborns.

We think we have triplet baby deer! We don’t know if there were two mothers and one died, or if one mother really had 3 babies, but there are 3 hanging around together, all appear to be the same size. Never saw that before.
We have had triplets here before— a lot of twins. They haven’t been real visible yet but the bears are super active so that’s an indicator the fawns are around.
Bambi alert! How fun for you. We have enough woods, foliage and fields near us, so at our apartment we’ve all enjoyed watching the deer and babies. One mama deer is very bug and regal looking. And her baby is so sweet and gawky.
Looking forward to the photos! What a treat that will be! You do live in a wonderful area! Good books, caring neighbors, terrific music, and lovely vistas!!
Oh I do hope everyone slows down and watches for the babies. The signs are a greta idea. Love baby animals, especially dear and antelope.
It’s one of my biggest pleasures driving through the mountains and looking for dear. Ever since our first summer trip, we’ve seen deer on our way to the grocery store the first night we are there and since then we always hope for the same and so far have gotten lucky! ❤️ Can’t wait to see your pics soon.
I doubt deer every develop “street sense.” At least not in Minnesota. But it sounds like along your long and winding road, that sign will keep deer safe, especially those cute fawns.
So glad someone put the signs out. Hope everyone watches out for the beautiful babies. I was blessed a about a month ago to see two little fawns.
It is that time of year for baby wildlife
