The first fawns have been seen on the Mendonoma Coast.

Clay Yale sent in the first photo of the spring showing a newborn fawn.

One of the first Fawns and two Quail by Clay Yale

The spotted fawn is seeing the resident Quail, perhaps for the first time.

So now is the time to drive slower. If a Doe crosses the road in front of you, pause for a moment or two to see if a fawn...or two...or even three... might be following close behind.

Thanks to Clay for allowing me to share his photo with you here.
