June Wildlife at Mountain Lake

One of our guests was able to spot this newborn fawn near the hotel on one of our trails last weekend. We are seeing a lot of these fawns in mid-June as they are born. Later in the day the new fawn was spotted again following it's mother in a nearby meadow.
A curious quail responded to a mating call imitated by this same guest - it landed on the deck of their cottage just long enough to capture this shot!
