We’ve seen some incredible examples of bird photography, video, and even weirdly beautiful audio. But photographer Jocelyn Anderson takes filming birds on a more personal level. Her little models eat out of her hand, and I mean it quite literally. As she feeds them, she films them in a series of incredibly soothing and heartwarming slow-motion videos.
“I often visit a park that has birds that have been hand-fed for years,” Jocelyn explains. “Since the birds are quite friendly, all I need to do is show up with some peanuts and sunflower seeds.” The birds land on her hand, and she films them with her iPhone 11 as they munch on the seeds and nuts.
You’ll see all kinds of birds in Jocelyn’s videos: woodpeckers, titmice, cardinals, blackbirds… Since some of them move really fast, Jocelyn films them in slow-motion so we can see all the details of their movement. And we can see better just how adorable they are.
Take a look at some of Jocelyn’s videos below, and you’ll find much more on her YouTube channel.
