This might make you think twice about putting food in your golf bag. lol ... and the guy is a freakin' idiot in the end, to say the least.

In retrospect, the squirrel stealing a hot dog 1from my cart was pretty tame

Kinda interesting, because we do get occasional Black Bear on our course (and in our yard) when the cross the river since our course is on an island on the Delaware Water Gap between PA and NJ, 24 of the 27 holes are on the island.. Many deer, fox, turkeys and of course Squirrels.

We even have a Bald Eagles nest that has been there for about 25 years above one of the tee boxes. They have about 2 baby eagles each year.

A number of eagles nest along the river running past our course. Awesome to see them as the "fish" the river.
This isn't the best photo, but we had a tree at the dogleg corner of #10 go down a few years ago. Had the stump carved into an eagle watching us as we tee off. We try to bend the dog leg and sometimes he doesn't duck. I've hit the stump just below him twice in the past couple weeks.

They are incredible to see. Been members there for 14 years, and always look forward to seeing them (and their offspring) flying around the course.

Occasionally you find a fish in the middle of the fairway that they drop. Funniest we ever saw was when they bring small groups from people staying at the resort out to view the Eagles. One day we were out on the tee box, and they were talking about how cute they were. The next thing we saw was small animal body parts coming out of the nest from them feeding. lol

Nest has been above the 4th tee box on the Blue course for 25 years. They get 2-3 offspring a year. Bald Eagles mate for life. They don't get their white head for about 5 years. If the young don't leave they nest when they want, they start to tear the nest apart. If I ever had kids, that seems like a good policy. lol The offspring never returns to the nest or the parents go after them (to say it lightly).

We had a huge population of squirrels for many years. As treelined as our course is, it's expected. Had a clubhouse manager that would toss crackers to them on the clubhouse patio. That got them to stealing candy bars, peanuts, crackers from the cubbyholes on people's carts.

The past two years, seemed like the squirrel population had diminished. This year, they "over populated" again!! Squirrels everywhere.

Our biggest wildlife issue, lately, is geese. What filthy fowl!! A few years ago, we had Forestry, Fish and Game come trap some and take them to the lake north of town. Wasn't just a few days and they were back. They mate for life. They think our 14th hole belongs to them. Goose poop everywhere.

Our superintendent found some concoction of stuff that is supposed to keep them away from the area you spread it. Something like orange peels, peppermint, eucalyptus, etc. Works for a short while, they rain and time it deteriorates. He just applied it again this past week and we've not had the poop to putt through.

This year, we've had some Pilated Woodpeckers find us. Usually have lots of the old common woodpeckers, but not the pilated ones. They rascals are huge. But, in addition to hammering away on our trees, they get on the ground and grub for bugs, etc.
