Young of the Year

At last count, we are 38% of the way through Season Two of Snapshot Wisconsin! On behalf of the research team, thank you! Keep up the great work!

Today I am sharing some of our favorite photos of deer fawns, bear cubs, and other young from previous seasons.  For the purposes of this project, we define “young” as offspring of the year, or animals less than one year old.  Because it is difficult to tell juveniles from adults by late fall, spring and summer photos are a great time to spot photos of young. To differentiate young from adults look for differences in body size, as well as juvenile markings, like the spots on deer fawns.  See our FAQ section for more details.

Have you spotted young of any other species? Share with us in the comments or on the Talk boards!
