Welcome

TTU is for the birds, for nature, and for people.

Birding is a door to adventure, nature, and involvement. Birds are an integral component of almost all ecosystems and a gauge for the health of the entire ecosphere.

Please check out the birding resources in the right column.  

If you are in North or South Carolina or plan to bird out state, visit the Carolina Bird Club website, where you will find a plethora of information about birding.

If you like photography, please visit my photography page.

If you like travel stories, I have started a travel blog at Wild Places, Wild Birds.

NEW for 2017

Teardrop Birding

Beginning in July,  Sheree and I will begin traveling to birding spots using our T@B trailer. 

Sound Recordings

Although still a work in progress,  I have started a decent collection of North Carolina birds songs.

 This is one of my all-time favorite images.

Walked out of the Surfside Motel in Nags Head, North Carolina, and quickly ran back up to the room, screaming about not having my camera.

In the spring of 2016, I took a trip to England, and we visited Bempton Cliffs. It was an all too short, but fantastic experience.  Read about the adventure here.
