Tuesday my wife asked me to check on something in her "flowers" ...i looked down and there was a fawn curled up under a Peony plant..It did not seem bothered by me so i called my wife to take a picture. When it was good and ready it got up on its spindly legs and ambled off.Today i went to put some coffee grounds in the compost bin and the fawn is back. I do not know if the mother leaves her there for safe keeping...we do no see the adult deer during daylight. The fawn is welcome...but not her parents that mow down all our hosta plants.

Wonderful to share. Make certain that you do not get a human scent on the fawn though, as that will cause the mother to abandon it.
Best,

That's a myth. We were recently in touch with a rescue organization about an apparently "abandoned" fawn. While they recommended not touching it, they confirmed that doing so would not affect the relationship with mother.

Mothers will leave their fawns in secluded spots for hours on end.

re: A little visitor in my wifes flowers

Roy is technically correct, and I do stand corrected. The more accurate statement ought to be:
"Fawns are odorless for first few weeks, that way they cannot be smelled by predators. But if touched by a human, when the mother gets to it, it will smell the human odor, sense danger and will change the fawn's hiding location, if it is still caring for the fawn along with licking the human smell off its body to keep it away from predators

If the fawn is abandoned it won't be accepted by its mother anyways. Fawns are occasionally abandoned for many reasons. Its mother might have been killed, or she might have had more than one offspring. In this case she will not bond with the weakest of the fawns."

Sorry for the misinformation originally.
Best,
Dan

re: A little visitor in my wifes flowers

Don’t be too hard on yourself Dani20. You were partially correct.

When I was 2 I was playing hide and seek in our backyard and brushed up against a fawn. My mother found me, sniffed a couple times, then abandoned me.

Wonder if that explains my lack of social skills...

re: A little visitor in my wifes flowers

A great picture! At least he's safe, I saw one a little bigger than this one dead on the side of the road today. I always thought they could be avoided on the highway if we were really careful ... until I totaled my last car when I hit a large buck about two years ago. I have about four acres, most of which I just leave as nature intended. I put out corn for the ducks but every once in a while the deer come out. A couple years ago I saw a doe with three small fawns, a beautiful sight! I honestly think I prefer animals over people - at least you know where you stand, even when I saw a large black bear about ten years ago ripping down one of my bird feeders. I knew exactly where to stand ... quite a distance away!!

re: A little visitor in my wifes flowers

the fawns are in abundance early this year. I have only seen singles (last year there were a number of pairs).

as to hitting deer, I've only hit one, and I never saw it coming from the side in the moonless night.

Jopie's picture is just gorgeous. The mom thinks your flowers are a safe place for her fawn.

re: A little visitor in my wifes flowers

Deer can be dangerous when driving at night. I have hit one in the past and I was fortunate that it was a glancing blow.
Another night I came round a bend, at speed, and was confronted by a whole herd of about thirty of them. I braked, I swerved this way and that and fortunately missed them all. It was that close that I had deer poo on my windscreen!
Thankfully I was wearing my brown trousers!!

re: A little visitor in my wifes flowers

After my father-in-law hit a deer he bought some gadget to put on his front grill that makes a whistling noise that repels deer.

He gave me a set but I put them on backwards. Now deer follow me everywhere I go.
