Saturday morning, I was taking photos of a green heron at Lake Tamarack (see first photo below), trying to follow it as it flew from branch to branch along the shore. After a while, a second green heron came onto the scene (see second photo below). At one point, I was able to get them both in one photo (see photo above). Click here to link to a post with more green heron photos that were taken in May.
A link to a survey about bears in Bent Tree went out via yesterday’s “Friday News” email. The survey was developed by the Georgia DNR and they will share the resulting report with Bent Tree. The survey link will be available until close-of-business on Friday, June 28th and is intended for Bent Tree residents only. The DNR requests that one survey be completed per household. So, check your “Friday News” if you would like to participate. I took the survey yesterday and look forward to seeing the future report.
Let awake ones lie, too. Young fawns are left alone for hours, but the mother will be back. Check back tomorrow for more photos of this fawn and the return of its mother, all taken yesterday in Bent Tree over the course of about 10 hours.
After not seeing a deer in Bent Tree for several weeks, I was in the right place at the right time to see this pregnant doe, yesterday. According the the Georgia DNR Wildlife Resources Division, “Most [fawns] are born between May and August with a peak in June.”
Every now and then, a round of golf at Bent Tree might be slightly delayed due to wildlife. That was the case yesterday when a line of turkeys crossed the #9 fairway. Click here for a somewhat related post from last year.
