Fawn Season at Pioneer Bluffs
May – June wildlife camera video compilation – The surge of spring rain coursing through Crocker Creek and the fresh green foliage create a beautiful backdrop for glimpses of wildlife in the natural area at Pioneer Bluffs. In addition to the deer you will see bobcat, coyotes, a pair(!) of beaver, blue heron and more. Fawns walking with the mother doe and also bedding down in the glade appear throughout the video.
