I was surprised this morning to see a White-tailed deer in the yard. Just yesterday a neighbor told me that he had seen some at his place. While White-tails are common in a lot of the Robson Valley, in our neck of the woods we don’t see them, we see Mule Deer.
White-tails are a lighter tan color, they seem more delicate, and as you might expect, have a long tail that is white on the underside. The white tail is like a flag waving behind them as they bound away. Mule deer (photo below) are more bulky, a darker color, and look stronger.
I don’t know why the White-tails have suddenly made an appearance.
