These baby Killdeers just hatched from a nest behind #1 green. The nest was on the ground in the bark chips. Last week I saw four well-camouflaged eggs. And yesterday I saw all four chicks, so all the youngsters made it! Photos were taken in front of the Siebel Varsity Golf Training Complex.
A duck swims lazily in the ditch on hole #6. Water from the San Francisquito Creek is being pumped into this ditch at hole #9. The water then flows to Lake Lagunita to provide breeding habitat for the threatened Tiger Salamander.
