‘I can’t wait to go leafpeeping!’
Michaela on hitting the road with Chris…
What are you most looking forward to?
Sitting in a convertible car with Chris and going leaf-peeping! I’m really looking forward to the rich colours of the Fall. I’m going to be such a tourist! We go as naturalists, but why not enjoy maple syrup and pumpkins along the way?
What’s on your Wildlife Wish list?
Moose – despite the fact they’re huge animals, they’re very difficult to see in the wild. Bobcats – they’re integrating in very built up areas. and a spectacle called a ‘tornado of tree swallows’ that’s like our murmuration of starlings.
are you Worried about anything going Wrong While filming?
I hope we see the Fall in its full glory and not just one little leaf! When Chris and
I did the cherry blossom special [in Japan], we got the spectacle on our last day of filming, and only because we took a bullet train to tokyo and chased it!
