“Touch the Sky”

There are only three people in the state of Michigan who band hummingbirds. In “Touch the Sky” I meet two of them; husband and wife team Rich and Brenda Keith. In this ten-minute docu-short from Fall 2016, I interview Rich about his work at the Kalamazoo Nature Center and get a closeup look at the bird-banding process. We travel by golf cart out to the fields to see how the birds are caught, and later, capture the awed reactions of visitors who come from all over Michigan to see the birds up close before they are released back into the sky.
