Copyright: All photos are copyrighted material, owned by the photographer. The photographers have given the Carolina Bird Club the right to reproduce these photos, but you should contact the photographer for permission if you wish to reproduce a photo elsewhere or use it for any other purpose. On almost all pages, clicking on the photographer's name will give you their email address.

If you have your own photo web site Many Carolina bird photographers publish photos on private web accounts. Great! But one goal of the Carolina Bird Club photo gallery is to be a one-stop repository for photo-documentation of significant records in the Carolinas. If you publish a photo that serves to document a significant record—a state record, a county record, a seasonal record, a nesting record, etc.—on a private web site, please consider also contributing at least one documentary photo for display here. I will be happy to include with it a link back to your own site.

Notice of new photos is provided on the CBC RSS feed RSS.
