Our birding blooper happened in UK in 1997. We were staying at a B&B on a pig farm in Lincolnshire. It was wet and foggy (what's new) when we drove out past the pig sheds. There on one shed was a horned owl of some sort. After screeching to a halt and a mad grab for the camera and 400mm lens. Beauty we got off a couple of shots. Being in a hurry we moved on and our films were being sent to a processor who forwarded the finished prints to our daughter in London. When we got to London we said did you see the great owl photos, her reply was less than than enthusiastic "hadn't we noticed the hook on the owls head for hanging it up". It must have been there as some sort of deterrent to keep undesirables away from the pig sheds.
