Exciting fawn news update! We saw the mother and baby again today, safe and sound. And guess what, she has not one but two fawns! At one point, it looked like one baby was standing up and nursing, while another was sitting in the grass beside them. But we were viewing from quite a distance and couldn't be sure. Then, the doe started walking toward the bushes and two adorable little babies followed along behind her.
According to Fawn Rescue, if a doe has twins, they are never left in the same spot but are separated by hundreds of yards, making it less likely for a predator to get both. That explains why we only saw one in the meadow yesterday.
We still couldn't get close enough for any photos without disturbing them, but we'll keep watching for opportunities.
