May and June are the peak months during which young white-tailed deer are born. Newborn of the year are called fawns, and over the last few weeks I have received several reports, including some with photos, in the St. Joseph area.
On May 22, Jim Brooks of St. Joseph photographed a white-tailed deer in his neighbor’s yard. Five days later, Phil and Kathy Manni of St. Joseph Township. awoke to find a newborn fawn in their yard, along with its mother. They called their friends Pat and Bob Conrad, who came over and took some photos.
