Not taking the time to read the whole thread (sorry...), but the hawk vs. squirrel is a very common occurrence at Rutgers. There's a pair of red-tails that literally "use" we dg'ers as 'flushers'. They will follow us around the course...waiting for us to 'get the squirrels nervous'...scamper them (the squirrels) to an opposite side (from us) of a tree...where the hawks have a clear shot at them.
Have actually seen more than once (in 5 years of only occasionally playing there) hawky get lunch.

Texas Spotted Whiptail I believe.
Yeah, starting this thread was bad. I can do this all day, every day. Always have my camera with me.

Came across a couple of turkeys last week at Hudson Mills in MI. Pretty cool to see. It was standing right in the fairway as we were teeing off. Surprised none of us hit it.

I saw two rabbits hop onto a fairway a couple weeks ago and make sweet bunny love for about 5 seconds. I guess they do everything fast...

There's a hole at Riney B called the boneyard. Lots of bones around there from deer that coyotes or something killed. Just a little creepy to see the entire spine of an animal as you're golfing.

nothing more than a garter snake up here in st. louis

plenty of bugs though (good god they've been bad so far this year)

(on a related note, OFF Skintastic WILL keep the skeeters off of you, but it seems the sweet smell actually ATTRACTS gnats. Just barely on the plus side of the tradeoff.)

My son and I have seen a few critters. There are a couple big foxes that live at our local course and some huge turkey vulture type birds and some deer. Plenty of squirrels, geese, and birds, one of the birds actually died due to a mid-flight collision with my son's disc. Hole one and two actually border the local zoo, so you can see some huge elk and buffalo.
And at our other local spot I almost walked right through a rattlesnake nest! It was right in the fairway at CSU #7.

A defunct course called the Goat Path (on a working goat farm) had an area in a fairly deep ravine that was played around (and you could end up if you had an errant throw) where they would throw the carcasses of those who didn't make the dinner plate. It was, well, kinda gross to see legs sticking up into the air when there was a recent addition...

Thankfully all of the tourneys were played in the late fall through early spring so the smell of the graveyard wasn't too bad...
