FS1 Pumping In Bird Chirps To U.S. Open Broadcast Booth? [UPDATE]

FS1 US Open Booth Birds

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.

Why do you guys insist on putting fake bird noises in the background #oakmontfeatured
