    Who Dug That Hole?

    My question concerns the tearing up of divots from the lawn. These weren't furrows from skunks, but actual divots. I have seen black birds doing this, but wonder if any other wildlife would as well. Would it be because of grubs in the lawn or other insects?

The patches were 4 to 6 inches in diameter and infecting about 2 square...
