is the intellectual property and creation of Fred Hurteau. This site
was originally created to provide amateur bird enthusiasts with photos
to enjoy and use to help them identify and appreciate the birds that
visit their feeders at home. It has since been expanded to also serve
as a source of higher quality images for stock
photo licensing. A sister site, CarolinaOuterBanks.com
provides an outlet for stock photography of the Outer Banks, coastal
scenery and nature photography.
Fred's interest in capturing images began before his teens.
Years later, while attending commercial art school, he found
his interest in nature photography, and birds in particular.
He switched from film to digital SLR's in 2003, which provided
higher resolution images, and quickly raised a long time hobby
to a new level of serious work. To contact Fred or inquire about
