Surprise Visitors at My Newest Listing on Fishhawk Lake!

By
Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

I was shooting photos of my newest listing at 10252 Lakeview Drive, Birkenfeld OR-- Fishhawk Lake-- when some fawns decided to pop by to have their pictures taken. Not shy, they walked right in front of us over my seller's property to go next door to get plums.

 

You can't plan this stuff!

Beth Atalay Okay, "Cue the deer!" This usually happens when I'm showing property, as if I had planned it. They were so sweet! Perfect timing. Thanks for popping by! I was just thinking of you very early this AM.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® being a huge animal lover, I'm always reading about wildlife and their mark on us. What the Robin Knows is my latest. Among other things, it teaches humans how to be respectful of the space we share with wildlife; birds, deer, cougar, otter, bear, coyote, elephant...all creatures!

Hi Gayle... nothing so sweet as a fawn... with the growth in Charlotte being what it is, we see fewer of them all the time.

Gayle,

We had deer on our Los Angeles property.  At one point one of our cats was pregnant and she was on the other side of the fence communing with a doe who was also pregnant.  They were both making noises. It was a friendly conversation, and they both left happy.

I love that Sheri Sperry - MCNE® mentioned the book Animal Speak.  One of our clients was into American Indian Animal medicine, and she mentioned that  deer bring magic into our lives...A

We have had a few deer visiting eating all our hostas, we tried using coyote urine to scare them, but it has not had any affect on our local deer.

Nina Hollander I not only have them as frequent visitors, but river otters, Roosevelt Elk, coyotes, and even a weasel last month came right up to my porch! Love living in the country. I see bear scat, too, but no live bear...YET. Still waiting on that one!

Ron and Alexandra Seigel those are the kind of stories that make my heart sing. Sheri made me think of a book I read long ago: ApeTalk and WhaleSpeak. It was excellent. 

Nick & Trudy Vandekar, 610-203-4543 dogs will definitely keep them at bay! I have studied deer resistant plants for years. If the weather gets to be too awful, tho, they will eat just about anything! Apples, too. I have a neighbor who has a doe that comes right up their driveway and waits for her to throw apples down to her. She comes back every year!

Hi Gayle- I think you should hire those deer for all of your listings!!! Whoever the new buyer will be, the deer will be an added bonus.

Sheila Anderson that's the right perspective, certainly. 

Sharon Tara that really was...I was just finishing up after being there for hours. Saved the back part of the home til just before leaving and voila! Showed up right on cue. I was quite grateful.

Sharon Lee we animal lovers who show respect do have these moments happen more frequently than others, for sure. See you soon!

Endre Barath, Jr. I will have to be sure to follow up on that! An agent with serious buyers is showing it this week. 

Brian England they are "frequent fliers" out here! Sat with my neighbor talking for a good while and a large doe just stayed with us, munching on apples under his tree as the sun went down. She didn't mind us at all.

Kathy Streib it is often the case when I'm showing properties here to have all kinds of wildlife crop up. I was in the middle of a home inspection once, when an entire clan of Mallard ducks with 6 ducklings marched on over the soon-to-be new owner's lawn to inspect us! I caught video of that one, too.
