Oh, deer!

The latest wildlife report coming from residents who live near Fletcher Field is astounding: Two deer and a fox have been seen at the park in recent weeks.

In the skies above the park, we’ve seen several hawks and pheasants over the years, to go along with the few planes that still fly out of City Airport.

On Saturday, there was an even a blimp sighting over the park. A DIRECTV blimp was in town all weekend for the Tigers-Red Sox series at Comerica Park and at one point flew directly over Fletcher Field.
