80: #80 Jocelyn Anderson – Birds close up

In episode 80, I speak with Jocelyn Anderson, photographer and birder.

Jocelyn lives in Michigan, and started photographing birds around 4 years ago. Her award-winning bird portraits are absolutely stunning.

Jocelyn also films gorgeous slow motion videos of Woodpeckers, Chickadees and Nuthatches taking food from her hand.

In our interview, Jocelyn shares tales of the birds she has photographed at her local park in South eastern Michigan, including the fascinating story of a gosling adopted by a Sandhill Crane family.

In addition, there are tips on photographing birds, and the benefits of joining local birding groups.
