Word Game

Who can guess the words covered up by the tail of this immature redtailed hawk? Its tail will eventually turn a reddish brown in a year or so if I remember right.

How Many Deer??

We drove through Boyer Chute NWR on Thursday and saw a sight that had us stop for several minutes along the main road. A partially mowed and partially unmowed recreated grassland held an unusual sight. Along the line of mowed/unmowed grass approximately 200 feet back from the main road occured this "line" of deer. We got out the binoculars and counted at least 150 deer. We probably missed a few that were laying in the grass. Never before have we seen so many deer in one gathering. Bob's last highest count was close to 100, and also at this refuge, but on the other side of the chute and about 2 miles further east. How many deer do you count in this picture?
