Faunus All Alone-us
and twins Fauna, and Faunus were quite a trio throughout
Spring and foggy Summer of 2005, but as Fall approached,
Flora and Fauna went off on their own, probably to the
forested slopes of Mount Tamalpais, leaving little Faunus
to wander about on his own.
first Faunus tried to make friends with the other visitors
at our house, like the Quail, who visited every few
about the Other Occupants, once Faunus actually walked in
our open front door.
a several weeks in the Winter/Spring of 05/06, Faunus
befriended a lonely pregnant doe, but she eventually
ditched him to have her own babies.
he started getting bumps on his forehead...
Spring of 2006 Faunus' horns were growing and his
familiarity with the Other Occupants grew...
first he was too small to rob the birdfeeder as his mom had
done, so he befriended Kadi to the point that she would let
him eat seeds out of the birdfeeder filling cup.
Faunus did eventually learn to stand up on his hind legs
like a kangaroo to clean out the birdfeeder.
the Spring of '06 turned to Summer, Faunus' horns lost
their fuzz, grew sharp, and he became a handsome young
handsome young buck who loves his birdseed...
