Nichols was a keen birder who was a member of the Essex County Ornithological Club associated with the Peabody Museum in Salem. His obituary notes that he was "especially interested in music and birds, giving great attention to the shore-birds." This superb early example of his work manifests his knowledge of wild birds and his ability to detail his observations of their forms and plumage in wood and paint.
