Deer Tracks George Burke Park

George Burke Park - 1600 Balmoral Street

White-tailed deer are common in this area. In the spring and summer you might catch a glimpse of them nibbling on twigs or grass.  A baby deer is called a fawn, and unlike its parents these little ones have white spots on their backs. This is to help the fawn camouflage into tall grass and bushes for protection.  Another way these deer protect themselves is by using their white tails to alert each other of danger nearby.


Clue: From the parking lot, walk straight past the ball diamonds toward the big, flat rock at the river.
