At 12 years old, Liron Gertsman is SPES’ youngest volunteer. However, that’s not the only thing that sets him apart from most of his peers; he has a great passion – and ear – for birds and his photographic skills are unmatched by most adults.

Liron has been interested in ornithology since he was five, has spotted 371 species of birds and captured photographs of all but four of them, which he posts on his blog.

Last night CBC’s “The National” ran a great piece on Liron, and you can see more about what makes him tick here.
