A Personal Reflection from the Field

When Doe #70 wakes up she won’t be the same.  She won’t mate again or carry and nurse another fawn. We have changed her. She likely will live longer and be healthier physically, and by all observations will return to her normal social and familial relationships. We can’t know if she would choose this option […]

Audrey (Doe #7)

We here at “Deer Headquarters” can’t help but think of the glamorous Audrey Hepburn whenever we see this graceful beauty strolling through the neighborhood.  At ~10 years old as of the most recent update of this post (Summer 2023), Audrey makes her home in Mt. Storm Park and the surrounding yards of Lafayette Avenue.  Audrey […]

Available for Adoption: Doe #34

When we first encountered Doe #34 in December 2015, she appeared to have no family; she wandered the yards and woods of Amazon and Egbert Avenues by herself and seemed to prefer her own company to that of other deer.  Over the years, however, we’ve seen her slowly integrate herself into, and be accepted by, […]

Ellen (Doe #37)

If you are lucky enough to glimpse Ellen slipping quietly through the trees of Mt. Storm Park, you’ll be treated to a vision of grace and beauty.  But Ellen is far more than a pretty face.  Like her namesake, Ellen is a loyal and loving friend to Peggy (Doe #51).  Though their personalities are different […]

Frances (Doe #27)

We’re not quite sure how we got so lucky as to have Frances in the neighborhood, because clearly this ~13 year old (as of Summer 2023) beauty belongs in Hollywood.  When she’s not striking a pose for our field cameras, Frances can be found strolling through Mt. Storm Park and the surrounding woods and yards […]

Gladys (Doe #49)

If you are out for a walk in Mt. Storm Park and have the strange feeling of being watched, it just might be Gladys surveilling you from behind a bush.  Gladys, age ~11 as of the most recent update to this posting (Summer 2023), likes to keep close tabs on what her human neighbors are […]

Iris, Goddess of the Rainbow (Doe #83)

Clever and spunky, Iris – like a rainbow – brings joy to our community.  Four years old as of the most recent update of this post (Summer 2023), Iris isn’t afraid to strike out on her own – she’s independent and curious enough to explore parts of the neighborhood outside her core territory on her […]

Mae (Doe #71)

A bold and adventurous social butterfly, Mae is happy in a crowd of deer and enjoys joining her Aunt Gladys (Doe #49) in games of “lets spy on the human” in the Mt Storm Park and the yards of Lafayette Avenue.       Mae is one of the few deer in our herd who was […]

Maliki (Doe #28)

This gal’s long legs and erect bearing make us think of a graceful dancer! Aged ~10 as of the most recent update of this post (Summer 2023), Maliki is hard to photograph solo because she rarely goes anywhere without her family, Pippy (Doe #25) and Doe #42.  Since the sad disappearance and presumed death of  family […]
