All right, I have to join this conversation re: Birding while....playing
Cricket.  At times it gets a bit boring while in the field, so my eyes
start to wander about the skies.  Here's some of my better sightings:
Yellow-tailed B-C, Wedgies, Dollarbirds, Swamp Harrier, W-f Heron,  and
the "piece de resistance" (that's Ozzie French) while scoring one
afternoon early last year at Jacobs Well (QLD), I saw a small flock of
black birds flying towards me.  I got half keen when I picked the jizz
as being Black Cockies, but I jumped out of my seat and left the scoring
to my team mate when they flew past with brown heads and yellow around
the neck, GLOSSIES.  I had searched for these fiends quite a number of
times but to no avail and they turn up at the cricket where I had no
binoc's or camera.  By the way, I have not dropped a catch while
birdwatching.  A matter of keeping one eye on the ball and one eye on
the birds.
