I'm a bird photographer.

Hi. I’m Ronan Nicholson, a fifteen-year-old birder who lives in Sacramento, California.

When I was 9, I heard a noisy bird in our backyard. When I found it, I wanted to identify it. After researching backyard birds from a book at the local library, I discovered the bird was a California Scrub-Jay. This became the ‘spark bird’ that lead to many hours of observing, drawing, and photographing almost any type of bird.
