Golf Course Bird House


I found this bird house on the 12th hole of the Ocala Golf Course. It's a bit strange to find a bird house on a golf course, but it's really strange to find one that is so beat up. It looks like some larger birds (or other animal) has successfully enlarged the original hole. I asked my friend to stick a finger in the hole but he refused. Politely. Chicken!

Ah, thanks for the smile and giggle for the day -- another GRAY, WET day!! I hope you have a great week, Lowell!!

Perhaps a snake has made its home in there!

Kay said...

Gee, Lowell! You think humans are the only ones who want to live next to a golf course??

Halcyon said...

Did you stick your hand in? ;-)

Hi Lowell, are you sure that this is a bird house and not the 12th hole of the Ocala Golf Course ? :)
Anyway, nice find !

I wonder what the rent is if it doesn’t play golf. I do not play golf and had to pay a premium for my lot and home on the Golf course. I did refuse to don wings and have my nose enlarged when I threatened to sue for discrimination.

I wonder how many golf balls have gone flying through that hole?

Linda said...

Hilarious, Lowell! Thanks so much for sharing. It is snowing here in Montreal today. :)

You didn't want to interrupt your game for a first aid stop now did you? It's cool that the course is protecting birds that way instead of seeing them as a nuisance.

I was wondering the same as Sharon :).

Yes it looks as if there have been some renovations, Lowell!

Lois said...

Yeah, I wouldn't stick my finger in there either! It does make a lovely picture though.

Probably a hungry squirrel or other meat eater tried to get in to eat the eggs, or the baby birds.

Maybe there is a chicken in there. Good one

I wonder who enlarged that hole.

What a brave bird to live on a golf course! (Or does a squirrel live there?)
