Hello everyone! My name is Miller Jackson and I am 14 years old. I have been interested in birds, mushrooms, butterflies, and all of nature for as long as I can remember, but I started to seriously get into bird watching when I was 7 or 8. My grandmother got me interested in birds and gave me most of the resources that I use, all of which were her own.

I am also a major Godzilla fan, especially of the older movies. My favorite Godzilla movie is Gojira, the original movie from 1954. I also have many bird feeders in my small yard as well as a pollinator garden when the weather is warm. While bird watching is one of my favorite hobbies, I also love math/physics, archery, coin collecting, skateboarding, knitting, reading, and nature in general.

If I make any mistakes in identifying other observations, please let me know. I have much to learn and I occasionally rush through observations.

In May of 2019, my parents bought me a Nikon D3500 with an 18-55 mm lens (set lens) and a 70-300 mm lens, which I will usually use for the birds. They said they were going to surprise me with it for my birthday, but they decided to give it to me early after seeing how frustrating it is to take bird pictures with an iPhone. My mother used to be a professional photographer (with film), and she wanted me to take up photography with a DSLR camera. I still have a lot to learn from her, but my hope is that this camera will help make me a better birder and a better photographer.

Some of my favorite bird watching spots are the Magic Hedge bird sanctuary in Chicago, the Brownfield bog in Brownfield, Maine, most of Denmark, Maine, Wynnewood valley park in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania, Central Park in NYC, and Villa Borghese in Rome.
