Deer in our Neighborhood

Seen Tuesday 7-22-08 near Central and Orrington.


A couple weeks ago (right after Thanksgiving) my family and I saw three large deer slowly walking through front yards on the west side of McDaniel, on the block south of Grant. They seemed unhurried and unbothered by traffic, or by us stopping to gawk at them.

It's the first time I've seen deer in the neighborhood, tho my wife saw one bound through some back yards toward Lincoln many years ago, and I've of course seen many deer over by Harms Wood, and occasionally wandering out by the courthouse.
