Bird Hitches A Ride On An Ospreys Stick – Incredible Moment Caught On Camera

Jocelyn Anderson has been photographing birds for over 5 years in an attempt to learn more about them and connect with them.

One day, while out taking photos of some Great Blue Heron nestlings, she saw a once-in-a-lifetime scene unravel right in front of her eyes, and she managed to capture it on camera.

It was a red-winged blackbird hitching a ride on a stick that an osprey was taking back to its nest.

She uploaded the photo online, and it instantly became a viral sensation.

“The osprey adjusted its course so it was flying towards me and I could see that the osprey was carrying a stick for its nest,” Anderson says to My Modern Met.

“The blackbird continued its chasing, and at one point it looked like the blackbird was going for a ride on the stick. I was surprised that the blackbird followed the osprey halfway across the pond; I like to think the blackbird was enjoying the free ride.”

Jocelyn Anderson is a talented photographer, and photos like this are what make all her work worthwhile, “Bird photography is a challenge, but it’s a wonderful one and a great way to get a glimpse into their world.”
