A Deer Bird Watching

By | November 30, 2020

It is rarely I see a Whitetail Deer looking up in the trees. This young Deer was bird watching. A Crow was above it in a tree making lots of noise. Several other Deer were in the area but they ignored the Crow. This one would stare up in the tree watching the Crow.

I was sitting in a ground blind on my property with my camera on a tripod. The Deer like to stay on my property year around and I have an area that I know they will pass through.
