[Tweeters] Birds and Golf Courses

Dear Levi and Tweeters,
 
Although I almost never play golf any more, I must admit I've been a golfer longer than I've been a birder, which is a while now. After I'd been golfing for a few years, and had also subsequently taken up birding, I asked my dad if I might bring my binoculars along in my golf bag. Dad was horrified at the mere suggestion, and so I have yet to do anything of the kind.
 
Even so, just about all of the scorecards I've kept have things like "WAVI 2" and "PIWO" written in the margin, in the extra rows for additional players, on the front page (on top of the usual logo or aerial photo of the course) and so forth!
 
Yours truly,

Gary Bletsch

"Nun," sagte ich, "wenn ich ein Taugenichts bin, so ist's gut, so will ich in die Welt gehen, und mein Glueck machen." Und eigentlich war mir das recht lieb, denn es war mir kurz vorher selber eingefallen, auf Reisen zu gehen, da ich die Goldammer, welche im Herbst und Winter immer betruebt an unserm Fenster sang: "Bauer, miet' mich, Bauer, miet' mich!" nun in der schoenen Fruehlingszeit wieder ganz stolz und lustig vom Baume rufen hoerte: "Bauer, behalt' deinen Dienst!"

>I was just at one the other day in a tournament and one thing I have found is the birds have really got use to humans being around. We drove our cart past a Blue Heron that was no more than 5 feet from us, didn't fly off or anything, it kept it's eye on us but that was it, unless thats normal, im no expert. (Wish I had my camera). Same with the geese and their little goslings, we were putting about 8 feet away from some just hanging out in the grass.
