Of course there was the day I was birding over on the east shore of
Westernport,  and scanning a paddock in hopes of
Orange-bellied/Blue-winged parrots.  Not a sausage, just some Magpies
and a white plastic bag...  Then the plastic bag turned into a leucistic
Magpie with almost no black colour at all.

Recently while showing an overseas visitor around my local area I
screeched to a halt when I spotted a Black-shouldered Kite perched in
a dead tree by the roadside.
We reversed some 100 metres to gain a view of it again, and to my
total embarrassment there before us was a white plastic bag caught on
the uppermost snag.
Just had to laugh !
