About Rob Ripma
Rob is a lifelong Indiana resident and co-owner of Sabrewing Nature Tours. He is also the creator of www.NuttyBirder.com, “the place to go to find birds”. Rob has traveled and birded extensively throughout the Americas and taken pelagic trips into the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
Rob is currently the President of the Board of the Amos Butler Audubon Society (ABAS) in Indianapolis and is also on the board of directors for Ohio’s Black Swamp Bird Observatory (BSBO). Prior to joining the ABAS and BSBO boards, he served on the executive board of the Indiana Audubon Society for three years as Treasurer and Vice President. He is co-founder of the Indiana Young Birders Club and speaks at a variety of organizations and schools about birds and birding to share his knowledge and experiences in the field. He’s been the primary bird blogger for Birds & Blooms Magazine since 2013.
Rob loves working with new and experienced birders of all ages and believes that teaching people about birds will not only increase interest in birding but also help them better understand why we must work to protect birds and their habitats.
A graduate from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business in 2008 with a degree in Marketing, Rob lives with his wife Stephanie in Carmel, Indiana.
