“Red-winged Blackbird looking like it’s getting a free ride on an Osprey’s broomstick,” she wrote on Facebook. “The Blackbird was focused on driving the Osprey away from the marsh, while the Osprey was focused on bringing back a good stick for the nest.”

The image is getting a lot of love on Facebook. It is truly one-of-a-kind. And, Anderson is humbled by all the praise.

“Birds are so entertaining, they give me lots of good photo ops,” she wrote.
