Free Vintage Bird Pictures
I fell in love with these bird pictures, which came along for the ride when I bought some CDs with vintage images. The colors and plumage on these birds are amazing in real life. But when you add the artists' talent into the mix, the results are breathtaking.
I've wanted to share these bird pictures for a while now. But I had a sneaking suspicion that they might not all be in the public domain as I was told they were when I bought the CDs. So I checked the Audubon Society's Web site to see if some of the illustrations came from there. Sure enough, several of them were painted by Audubon; so I removed them from this page. The Audubon Society holds the copyright on them and it's important to honor that. If anyone finds other Audubon images on this page, I would appreciate it if they would leave a comment below to tell me so I can remove them. The same goes for works by any other artists. If requested I would either remove the image or provide a credit/link (artist's choice).

It's my hope that all the non-Audubon images are in the public domain, but I can't be sure. That's why -- unlike all my other pages that offer free images -- these illustrations are for your personal use only. Any commercial use is strictly prohibited. These prohibited uses include:
- On blogs or Web sites
- In craft projects you plan to sell
- In scrapbook kits
- As part of any print project, such as a book, brochure, business card, etc.
- As part of a product, such as a framed print, image on a mug, etc.
- Any other commercial use
