Odocoileus virginianus

I saw an adult White-tail Deer this morning on my street, startled it with the car and watched it run down the street and cross another before disappearing between two houses. I've been at this home for 11 years and have never seen a deer this close to my house or even in the neighborhood at all. I saw a Grey Fox earlier this year (Urocyon cinereoargenteus) that while called "grey" actually had red hair. What does this mean? Are these signs?
