Golf vs. Nature is always a compelling battle, especially when nature exerts itself. One Brazilian bird took to a practice facility to demonstrate the newest rendition of the classic duel.

Forget Surfin’ Bird — this is a Golfin’ Bird.

The bird is a seriema, known to live (and occasionally ravage practice facilities) in southeast South America. After scampering around with the ball in its beak, the seriema launches it’s head toward the ground, slamming the ball into the cart path. It displays some impressive swing speed, that’s for sure.

One interpretation: the bird was testing the ball’s durability and spin rates. Check out the video below:
