White Tailed Deer at Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center.

The hot, humid weather seems to be cooling. It was coolish and a little windy this morning, and I cut it short for fear of rain.

Egrets are still plentiful, Eagles are more visible, and a few Sandpipers are starting to show.

I suspect we’ll see many more species as migration picks up in the next week or so.

I assume these Whitetail Fawns are related.
