ALL images are by the photographer above (free, wild, & unrestrained)
--  Over 70,000 stock slide images available --
-- Over 910,000 stock digital images available --

- Over 838 Bird Species Photographed in the ABA-
- Over 1,400 Species Photographed in the World -
- Now over 25,000 individual images already on this website to date -

Please ask if you are looking for a particular species image (of anything)
as at this moment there are easily over 1,000 images being readied for the website

This IS THE MOST Extensive Bird Photo Gallery - over 835 Bird species (by one photographer)
on the Internet - photographed in North America north of the Mexican border.
There is no other, although a couple state these words, because they don't have
species images FROM North America but taken on other continents.
PLUS - over 1,400 species of Birds, Mammals, and other species from North America
and Eastern Asia (China, Japan, Thailand, Hong Kong) including the Bahamas



Enjoy the beauty of many North America's and eastern Asian birds and mammals!
Including a number of the rarest North American birds from places like:
Attu Island, Alaska, Gambell, St. Lawrence Island, Alaska, St. Paul Island, Pribilofs, Alaska, Texas,
SE Arizona, Florida, Bahamas, and my home state of California.

And, special galleries of the Birds of Japan, China, Hong Kong, Bahamas, and Thailand.

NOTE:  Many websites show those beautiful and "pretty" pictures, which are obviously wonderful.
However, I've attempted to lean toward images which give more of a 'learning' experience
by showing species as they are MOST often seen.  Do you ALWAYS see them in breeding plumage
with the sun behind you, sitting sideways, perfectly still, rotating slowly? No!
So when you see a bird with it's head turned away, or not in perfect spring breeding plumage,
or a perfect look, what do you do? Look at Pretty Pictures to ID it?

You'd hope to find somewhere that will give you images that show other
angles and more 'typical' views of a bird so you can learn what it is.
And, females and immature individuals as well, not just breeding males.

This is not a site for just pretty pictures - I really hope that people can learn from my images.

That has been my focus on this website.  Learning - not just Pretty Pictures.
