It sounds like the FS1 broadcast booth at the U.S. Open is in a bird sanctuary or the Fox Sports director is pumping in bird sounds to make the broadcast sound more Masters-y. You might remember that this subject came up a couple months ago during the Masters when I posed the question about birds on golf courses.
You never see birds, but these things sure do make an insane amount of noise during the broadcasts. Ever see a bird in the middle of a fairway?
At least show the bird feeder and mic that’s picking up the chirping.
UPDATE! Fox Sports says the U.S. Open birds are real.
