Another nearly-white Fawn was born this year.

John Batchelder spotted this fawn at The Sea Ranch. It is mostly white, but has some color on its back.

Nearly-white Fawn by John BatchelderThis isn't the first time we've had a white fawn born on the Mendonoma coast. It seems there is a Buck or two with a recessive gene for this condition. It is considered to be a tow-head, and the fawn will eventually color up, similar to a human child being born with blond hair, but it turns to brown as the child grows older.

Here is a photo by Gerda Rudolph of the white fawn born in 2014. You will see it had a normal-colored sibling.
