Photographer Captures A Bird Riding On A Bigger Bird's Rod

Rare footage of a little bird getting a complimentary lift on a bigger bird's stick was captured by an untamed life photographic artist from Michigan.

Photographic artist Jocelyn Anderson was as of late capturing an osprey (AKA ocean sell) at a lake when the inquisitive experience happened.

“I’m a wildlife photographer in southeastern Michigan that is a big fan of birds,” Anderson adds. “I was recently watching an osprey fly along the far border of a pool when I discovered it had a follower, a red-winged blackbird”

Anderson saw the smaller bird go on the offensive against the larger one as she kept her lens fixed on the two birds.

“Red-winged blackbirds are highly protective of their nests, attacking much larger birds to protect their young,” the photographer explains. “As the duo soared closer, I could see the blackbird spinning and calling at osprey, who was carrying a long stick for nest improvements”

“At one point, it appeared as if the Blackbird had landed on the huge stick taking a break from all of its moves. I was startled by how far the blackbird followed the osprey away from its initial nesting spot – perhaps it was taking advantage of the free ride!”

Maybe this was the beginnings of another bird ridesharing administration, or perhaps the birds were giving a valiant effort to reenact a scene from the film Kiki's Delivery Service:

In Studio Ghibli's Kiki's Delivery Service, the young witch Kiki rides her broom with her cat Jiji.

Photographing wildlife requires a combination of ability, knowledge, planning, and luck. An osprey carrying a shark carrying a fish was taken by a Florida wildlife photographer in 2018.

“I try to get out as often as I can to take pictures; you never know what will happen on that day,” a 2018 interview with GlaszArt, Anderson said, “I’m always looking to learn more about nature as I find my photos improve the more I learn about my subject.”

Anderson's art may be seen on her website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
