Preheat the oven to 350 degrees if not using an outdoor grill.

In a large bowl, combine the ostrich, eggs, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, and pepper. Season with salt, to taste, and fold together by hand; it is important not to overmix or use a lot of force as this will cause the burger to toughen up later. Portion into 4 patties and let rest in the refrigerator.

Preheat a grill or cast-iron pan on medium-high heat. Add the patties and sear for 3 minutes, then flip and reduce the heat to medium. If using a grill, lower the cover and continue cooking until the desired level of doneness is reached (medium or lower is recommended). If using a cast-iron pan, place in the oven to finish.

Remove from the heat to rest for a few minutes before serving; while resting, cover with aluminum foil for good results. Serve on buns with condiments and toppings of your choice.
