Wildlife Slideshow

One of the best parts of working at a golf course is getting to see interesting wildlife every day. At Sugar Creek, we see great blue heron, white egrets, mallards, and green heron almost every day during the season. These birds especially like hanging out by the bridge between the 5th and 6th hole at sunrise and sunset. For most of the day, they hunt for fish in the pond.

Other animals like coyote, beaver, fox, and even deer are seen more rarely at sunrise. Luckily the beaver has not been seen for 3 years!

Over the past few years, I've been able to capture a decent amount of these animals on camera. There are a lot more smaller mammals and songbirds around that have so far evaded the camera. Keep your eyes open next time you play Sugar Creek. You never know what you might see!


  1. Kevin - Your photos are great, what kind of camera and lens do you use?

  2. Mike - Most of these were taken with a Sony a300 with the stock 18-70mm lens. A few were taken with an Olympus Stylus Verve comapact that fit nicely in my pocket.

    Thanks for checking out the blog!
