Watching birdies


Taking a break from a bike ride in a hilly terrain
found a cozy bench at the edge of a “battlefield”
be understood a golf course
observing golfers might well be called “birdwatching”
they have a number of strokes per hole as standard
if they do one stroke less then it is called a birdie
if they need two strokes less then it is called an eagle
if they do three strokes less then it is called an albatross
if they need four strokes less then it is called a condor
pure birds talking
but if you have a stroke more so it is not called a seagull but a boogie.

Actually never played golf myself, enjoy bird watching but no “bird hunting”
but it is impressive many people who drop the complacent laziness
of chasing a small ball which they have shot away themselves.

Often the golf courses are located in really beautiful surroundings.

With the inspiration from Ailsa and her absolutly worth visting blog

28 tanker om “Watching birdies

  1. Super take on the theme!!!
    I don’t get golf myself either and I don’t understand what all those bird names have to do with hitting or not hitting that ball. Moreover, I find it odd that an “exclusive few” get exclusive use of a vast piece of land on which an extensive amount of water is wasted to keep the Green green.

  3. I’m not familiar with that sport ,but I’m really fond of the green where usually the golf
    courses are located….
    Your foto , with that peaceful field , those “lazy” people around and that mirror-like lake, is very inspiring…..
    Maybe, this time, it’s birds that love golfer-watching!
