GA EMU

Lake Russell state park. 2001ish. Heading to the first tee I caught an odd shape out of the corner of my eye.

Out from the woods came quite a sight. It was all of a 7' tall emu. Came walking toward me like I was his buddy. Needless to say I was a bit dazed and confused by the sight. I recall standing there for what seemed like 10-15 min just staring back at it. I think he figured out I was not good for any grub and he turned and slowly reentered the forest. I often wonder what came of him. g

Not on the course per se, but walking to the course. Almost ran over him. The thing didn't give a darn about anything going on around him. Just sat in the middle of the bike trail like he owned the joint. Ended up prodding him off of the rail so he wouldn't get hit.



Course had a few black( melanistic ) squirrels. Not just dark brown, but midnight black. Definitely caught our eye while throwing.

Our course is built around the duck pond at the local park so it abounds with wildlife. For out of state visitors probably the Nutria get the most attention. Have yet to see a snake but I know they're out there.

Looking forward to seeing some wildlife now that Winter finally lifted in MN. Starting to see and hear more birds out but my only close encounter was with a very scrawny stray cat.

Wish there were more than leaves for scale, but that snake looks pretty long. Wonder how many of those squirrels he's taken care of.

Recent wildlife in Florida.

Jonesville - 1 bald eagle near 18 basket.

Debary - 2 bald eagles nest on high power lines by parking area. They have other nests in trees as well around the park.

Amelia Earhart in Miami - A red & grey fox by #8.

Northside park in Gainsville - A very large owl swooped right above my head. Could not believe how big they are.

My avitar pic is from pine oaks Ocalla, Fl. Lots of hawks there.
