WATCH: Bird Tries to Steal Henrik Stenson’s Ball on the 14th Hole

Friday at the British Open featured some brutal playing conditions. Mother nature brought gusty winds and torrential rain, delaying play for over three hours in the morning.

One obstacle players weren’t expecting during the second round was the St. Andrews wildlife.

Henrik Stenson was teeing off on the 14th hole, 2-under par for his round. The Swede hit a solid tee-shot right down the middle on the Old Course that found the fairway. However, this well-struck drive also caught the attention of a very interested black crow.

Maybe the crow thought the ball was some sort of egg? Either way, this video is hilarious. H/T to Twitter user @ByTheMinGolf for capturing this epic video:

Stenson went on to par the hole, and finished 2-under on his second round. He’s 2-under for the championship (73-70-71).
