I almost missed this Whitetail Fawn behind a large Willow Tree at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. Saturday I posted a photo of a couple of Raccoons In A Willow Tree that I also almost missed. This is that same area. This is a small area that is called Miner's Cove and it is located just as you make a right turn at the four corners intersection. It is on the left and is surrounded by Willow Trees.
Most regular visitors to this refuge will stop and check out Miner's Cove for wildlife. In early spring this spot usually has lots of water, but this time of year it has very little. I always take a few minutes to look the area over and most of the time I will see something. I always wonder what wildlife I miss seeing because I know I do. This cove is worth checking out several times while at the refuge.
I'm not sure what type of plants the Fawn is standing in and I don't think it was eating it. I think the deer just use the back of the cove to move from one area to the next. They could also be using it for a bedding area.
I have been seeing a Green Heron in this Cove and I got a few photos of it, but I would like to get better ones before sharing them with you. This Heron is very difficult to see and it doesn't like staying close to the road.
