When you do field work in an urban area, you come across a lot of trash, most mundane, some startling, and some kinda funny. Yes, indeedy, this eating utensil was in fact at the intersection of two trails.
The amusement value of flatware in the forest pales in comparison with an item my friends and I found one year doing a Christmas Bird Count. Top honors for Most Unexpected Piece of Trash goes to the lifelike latex, uh, "marital aid" discarded (thought-provokingly enough) in an industrial area on a busy bridge over a river, which we were scanning for waterfowl. We counted it as "dickey bird sp." at the tally that evening.
