Episode Summary:

Today we are once again delving into the Wild Lens archives to share with you an interview that was recorded for our film project Bluebird Man.

One of our first shoots for this film project took place in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia.  Fellow producer Neil Paprocki and myself spent about a week in Canada shooting with the then-president of the North American Bluebird Society, Sherry Linn.

After a long day out in the field, we sat down with Catherine for at interview, which we are sharing with you today for the very first time.

In addition to her research on bluebirds, Catherine is also one of the creators of Dispatches from the Field – a blog site focused on stories about field work from all around the globe.  A few of us Wild Lens folks have contributed to her site, and we’re all really big fans of the work Catherine and her collaborators are doing with the blog.
