I don't suppose "Wild Life On The Golf Course" would not include some of the "Wild Life" I have seen in back yards. 😃

Alright, this is a test...

What are those?

FWIW, 70% will get this wrong...

Canada Goose. although the 3rd one from the left is actually Canadian... You can tell by his accent ..  Honk.. Ehh..

The course was looking for animals that were tearing up the course. My playing partner that day couldn't find his drive until we looked a little closer…….  Of course we had go give him a hard time about playing it where it lies...….  LOL

I don't think those are blue herons, but sandhill cranes.

Blue Herons.  They are huge, very loud, and cheeky.

Not herons.  Sandhill Cranes.

Sure.  Looks like it. They both live here.  I wonder if the herons are as loud.  Those things sure were.

Yep! Not blue herons! We have tons around here, including several big rookeries where they nest! They really don't make much noise except when they squawk. A very guttural, raspy sound!

Here's a wrinkle for you ornithologists.  This fellow tagged alongside us yesterday.  Not quite as fearless  though.  Until my education from you folks last week, I would have guessed that this is the same bird.  But it does not even look like the photo by sjduffers.  The head here is black on top.  Is THIS a Blue Heron?

EDIT:  It looks like some have black on the top of the head, just based upon an image search.

I wish I had pictures of some things I've seen... One course, now closed, had foxes, hawks and an incredible assortment of fish in the lakes. Living in Miami, I've seen gators in a few ponds and a wonderful selection of colorful birds. Up in Temple Terrace, Florida one time, there were some Bald Eagle nests and quite of few of them watching us play. When i lived in Jamaica, there was a surprising total lack of wildlife, other than small lizards.

All of that aside though, THIS was the strangest wildlife I've seen on a golf course.20190722_115059.thumb.jpg.51e392e2f89b35d4e7bbe366ee6ce28f.jpg
