Coues white-tailed deer drinking from one of the pools below Sabino Dam this morning. Interesting thing: Coues deer births coincide with the monsoon spurt in vegetation growth. Fawns will lose their spots after they’re weaned. Experts say if you see a Coues deer fawn that appears to be abandoned, don’t try to capture him/her. The mother is around, she’s just hiding.
