White-tailed Deer (Odocoileus virginianus)

White-tailed Deer is the most widely distributed deer in Americas but the only deer common on Montreal island and surrounding areas. They easily move from locations on different size of the river although I never saw them swimming.

How To Identify

If you spot a deer on Montreal Island it is most probably a white-tailed deer. Characteristic is their white tail displayed when running away.

Where and When to Spot

Although common, I saw white-tailed deers only in the remote parks such as Park Pointe-aux-trembles, Ile Bizard and surprisingly in Park Michel Chartrand which is completely surrounded by the city Longueil. This deer is around all year long. Strangely, I never saw a male White-tailed deer.
