Geez, Ollie, I was just wondering about saying the same thing. I wonder if some birds actually do avoid plastic altogether; it would be interesting to autopsy a few that died of natural causes and see how much they picked up, if any. As shocking as the images are, it's *possible* that only a minority are plastic eaters, and with the bajillions of seabirds out there, they may not be in danger. And no, I wouldn`t bet on it, and I do think throwing all that junk into the ocean is inexcusable.
