The first fawns have made an appearance on the Mendonoma Coast

It's always sweet to see the first newborn fawns of the spring. The first ones seen this week were twins. It looks to be a healthy year for our Black-tailed Deer with all the rain providing lots of grasses and other food. Drivers on Highway One need to be extra careful this time of year. When a Doe crosses the road, pause for a moment to see if a fawn or two or even three are following behind. Create a Mendondoma traffic jam - you'll be glad you waited a minute and saved the life of a beautiful creature.

Thanks to Siegfried Matull for this beautiful photo taken at Sea Ranch.
