Connecting Colorado Neighbors-The Foerster Team: How Do I Get Outta Here?

How Do I Get Outta Here?

How Do I Get Outta Here?

Baby DeerA few weeks ago, we came home to find some baby deer right outside our front door! A few days later, Momma and babies were out in the neighborhood.

On Wednesday night, we could hear the babies in our backyard crying because they couldn't get over the fence to Momma on the other side. Finally there sobs subsided, so we assumed they figure out a way to reunite.

Well, not the case. I was working in my home office on Thursday morning and heard some noise outside the window. I pulled up the shade and to my surprise found the 2 babies were still in the yard! I opened the side gate hoping they would find there way out and back to Momma. I had to leave and they were gone when I got back, so I hope there was a happy family reunion.

Of course, I had to snap a quick, cute photo while I still had them in the yard. They were more cautious around me this time, so I had to take a "long distance" shot with my phone camera. Not a great photo, but good enough. :-)

Thanks for the story of the deer.  So exciting to always see wildlife, not necessarily in your yard, but it does add to the whole atmosphere of where you live!!  Great photo!!

You were so wonderful to be so concerned about their welfare.

Donna, How exciting to see these babies so close, too cute. Hope they found their momma!

OH dear....and oh deer. Ha. They must have been so scared. Hope they are all reunited.

That is a great photo!  We are seeing a lot of does and fawns right down in the city this Summer.  It is sort of fun!

Hi Donna - It looks like they feel pretty comfortable around your home. We're getting a lot of wildlife in town now with the dry conditions everywhere, plus we're at the "overrun" stage of the rabbit cycle, so there's always a lot going on here.

How the heck did they get in there to begin with if you had to open the gate to let them out?  I bet momma was nearby watching.

Hi Donna, cool picture.  I just had a baby moose outside my house that I blogged about today.  Don't you just love these scenes.

Yes, They are adorable and today I had to help a family of OTTERS get away from Sand Hill Cranes that were chasing them.  I drove teh truck beteen the angry birds and the otter and gave him time to hit the water.

Dan~ I don't mind them in the yard, as long as they don't eat my plants and they can leave when they want to! (BTW, congrats on crossing the 200,000 milestone! Well done!)

Kathy~ Wish I knew if they were reunited with Momma or not. Maybe we'll see them this weekend.

Wanda~ Me too! It's worrisome.

Shar~ Their crying on Wednesday night was heartbreaking!

Tony & Darcy~ I've never seen such young ones and never so close.

Dick~ We've got rabbit issues too. They are eating our grass and we're not happy.

Chris Ann~ That's what I'd like to know.  How did they get in?

Scott~ I'll have to check out your moose post!

Kevin~ Otters?! Would never have guessed that cranes would chase otters. Nice "distraction" technique!

Donna, wow!  The babies really are tiny.  I'm surprised that their momma dear didn't stay very close by.  Glad they got out.

Posted by Patricia Kennedy, Home in the Capital (RLAH Real Estate) over 6 years ago

Glad to hear the little ones got out and more importantly, you don't have to listen to the crying!

Posted by Sharon Tara, New Hampshire Home Stager (Sharon Tara Transformations) over 6 years ago

Patricia~ She was around on Wednesday evening, on the other side of the fence, but I didn't see her on Thursday.

Sharon~ Didn't see them at all yesterday. Maybe this weekend. I'll be looking for them!

Posted by Donna Foerster, Metro Denver Real Estate Assistant (HomeSmart Realty Group) over 6 years ago

I think I would have kept them, Donna :-). We have babies wandering through our yard quite often and I always want to keep them.

Toni~ They aren't THAT cute! I've had my time with animals. Now I'm happy to admire from afar!

Posted by Donna Foerster, Metro Denver Real Estate Assistant (HomeSmart Realty Group) over 6 years ago

The wildest it gets here is a squirrel or a raccoon.  I prefer not to see the raccoon's but I know they like to visit my garbage cans.

Hi Liz~ We've seen a lot of bunnies too. They've been eating our grass. UGH! Not many squirrels or raccoons. Guess that's good.

Posted by Donna Foerster, Metro Denver Real Estate Assistant (HomeSmart Realty Group) over 6 years ago

Awwww. they are precious. So glad they made it out of the yard and hopefully to their mommy!!

Posted by Joni Bailey, Your Huntsville / Lake Livingston Area REALTOR® (101 Main St. Realty) about 6 years ago

Hi Joni~ I haven't seen them in quite a while. Guess they got tired of visiting with us.

Posted by Donna Foerster, Metro Denver Real Estate Assistant (HomeSmart Realty Group) about 6 years ago

Hi Donna, what an adorable post!  The picture is good and the baby is so small and cute!  I wrote a blog tonight that I had an unexpected guest at my open house and it was a daddy deer.  He was by himself and was in the backyard for a while.  It was a nice distraction since it was rainy out and the open house was slow.  It made me smile and I am sure the baby deers made you smile too!

Posted by Karen Johnson, Realtor, ABR, "Bucks County PA Homes" (Addison Wolfe Real Estate ) about 6 years ago

Karen~ It was very sweet. We haven't seen them since then. Guess they found a new place to hang out!
