Black-Tailed Deer Cool Off in the Waters of the Gualala River—A Dispatch from Mendonoma

The following is an article written by Jeanne Jackson for her blog Mendonoma Sightings where she documents the wildlife, the land, and the waters of our coast.


Paul Brewer’s Photograph of Black-Tailed Deer wading in the Gualala River

Black-tailed Deer do swim, and they are occasionally seen in the Gualala River. Paul Brewer recently photographed four Does wading in the river.

Perhaps they were thirsty! The Gualala River looks beautiful now. Look how blue that water is!

Thanks to Paul for allowing me to share his photos with you here. To see much more of Paul’s nature photography, here is the link: http://www.capturingnatureswonders.com/

It is a lovely day here on the Mendonoma Coast. Gentle breezes, temps in the 70s and the fog has been pushed way back. We are in for a warming trend for the next four or five days.
