Can anyone tell me when Charlie passed away? Perhaps his profile could be updated to reflect that information.

I just learned of Charlie's passing and my heart and prayers go out to his family. I worked with Charlie for several years at Florida Production Engineering and admire his knowledge, skills, abilities and council. They just don't come any better.

I was lucky enough to be a friend of Charlie. I went on many photography trips with him and one of THE best was up to Homer, Ak. We had a trip of a life-time photographing Bald Eagles. RIP Charlie

Charlie was my best friend! We shared several common interests: environmental conservation, cars, photography and birding. When we met, we seemed to bond immediately and our friendship lasted for more than 30 years. Our photography adventures took us to such diverse places as the Platte River in Nebraska, Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Texas ranch country, Arizona's Sonoran Desert, British Columbia, Panama, and all over Florida, including my favorite birding photography site, the Viera Wetlands. Many miles and thousands of photographs later, we remained close. Charlie was smart, kind, funny, a great photographer and a dedicated family man...the nicest person I have ever known!

Charlie, as a friend and neighbor, we will miss you greatly. You have been so generous by sharing your exquisite photos with all of us. We have gained a great deal of knowledge by crossing paths with you. Thanking you for all of that and more.

Charlie, you have been an inspiration to many of us, including myself. Thank you for showing me the ropes, and it was a pleasure working with you! Rest in peace my friend.

Charlotte and Family: Somtimes you don't realize how much someone influenced your life until they are not there. Charlie left such a legacy. He so graciously, generously, and humbly shared his knowledge of wildlife and photography. He was the one who organized and kept our group of "wetland rangers/closers" active for a long time. And he contributed in so many other volunteer activities to honor the wetlands of Viera. I learned so much from him, always enjoyed seeing and working with him. I feel his spirit when I am at the wetlands and will always recall and miss his presence. Charlotte, we know you were also large part of Charlie's contributions and activities at the wetlands. Peace and Love to all of you.

Charlie was a special person and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Robert Wicker 18-Nov-2013 20:28
Charlie was a kind soul, honest and caring man, a great photographer and most of all something I hold dear to my heart a true friend and I will surely miss him. We have shared many fun times together and I feel like I have lost my dad for the second time. His spirit will continue to surround us at the wetlands.

Charlie was a model of quiet wisdom, kind sharing, and artistic ability. We are lucky to have had you to capture, share, and explain the sights at Viera Wetlands.

Like so many others, I met Charlie Corbeil at the Viera Wetlands. After Charlie and his wife Charlotte moved to Suntree, he quickly discovered the ponds at the sewage processing facility as an outstanding wildlife photography location. Charlie was almost always present at the Viera Wetlands, and he was always willing to answer questions like “Where is the Masked Duck?”
Lynda 13-Nov-2013 21:29
Charlie, I feel as if I knew you by viewing your incredibly wonderful work with Florida birds and wildlife. Thank you for all of your beautiful images - you live on through them and your family. You have the best view now! God bless!!!
Craig Washka 12-Nov-2013 01:33
Your Vision is Clear now Charlie! Celebrate your new Life! It's obvious you followed your Dreams while on Earth! RIP
Anne Salemmo 11-Nov-2013 12:42
Charlie, you captured for all of us the beauty of the eagles . . . now you soar with the angels! Godspeed.
Judy Champion 07-Nov-2013 18:54
I loved your interest in Wildlife photography and I knew if I had a question concerning wildlife at or the wetlands, you would be the person to have the answers. 'Thank you! Charlie.' May you rest in Peace. You'll always be remembered. My heart-felt Prayers to your family and friends.
Guest 06-Nov-2013 12:52
You were a good man, Charlie Corbeil and will be missed by many. Godspeed.
Catherine 05-Nov-2013 21:14
So sorry to hear of your passing - all my thoughts and prayers are with your wife and family. You were a real gentleman and a mentor.
Ann 03-Mar-2013 02:22
We've been watching these comical birds on the water behind our home in Grand Isle not knowing until reading your article in the Viera Voice. This is not the first time we have thought to thank you for your interesting articles but they have become something I rely on and look forward to in each edition. Thank you VERY much.

Charlie, we live on a lake in Suntree, and have observed a strange type of water bird that I have never seen before. It is a type of duck with red or dark orange feet and bill. Body is dark brown with a white horizontal stripe on the side. Head is either light gray or brown. Doesn't quack like a duck, but has a high chirp. I took pictures of a group of 6 or 8 that was on the bank of our side of the lake. What would they be? Liked your recent article on Coots.
Tom Harmon 07-Mar-2012 14:04
Thanks for sharing your gift. Always looking forward to your article in the Viera newspaper

I love your pictures Charlie. I Hope me and my Husband Wayne can meet so you can show us around the wetlands.
Judy 30-Jun-2011 17:50
I look forward to your photos and comments on the area wildlife in the the Viera Voice. Your photos are great! I was wondering if you take them at a specific time of the day? I have been to the wetlands frequently, but don't seem to see the exciting things that you do!
Ellie Connick 30-Dec-2010 15:53
Charlie: I really loved your photos!! Ellie
Andie Kubilus 23-Oct-2010 23:34
I am so in awe of the photos and moments of life you have captured. Nature is beautiful and you have captured it! Your photos are inspirational. Thank you!

Hi Charlie,
It has been wonderful speaking and learning from you this week. Your photography is truly art!!! I really like the eagle photos knowing the story that goes with them. It is indeed inspirational. Hope to see you again at the Wetlands. And thank you so much for that link to the wild flower blog.
Bill Miller 23-Jun-2010 17:08
Mr. Corbeil,

It was a pleasure meeting you at Viera Saturday (I stumbled upon your group while photographing the Blue Heron family), and I wanted to compliment you on this extraordinary gallery of images. Your work is inspirational.
Jeanette Drake 27-Mar-2009 17:12

I saw your show on Focus (I have been a guest also) and I thought your photographs are beautiful. I am a wildlife painter and I am interested in getting your permissiosn to use some of your photos as reference. Please email me so that I can tell you more about myself and show you some of my work. I also travel to Gatorland frequently and visit the wetlands. My artwork was also at the birding festival. Jeanette
Aimee Johnson 08-Nov-2008 06:43
Fabulous gallery. Loved the animals and the wonderful textures and colors you captured.
Gene 13-Sep-2008 18:34

Your recent work is the best ever! When do you think the greatest variety of birds at at Viera Wetlands?
Guest 28-Jun-2008 16:32
would you recommend Viera as a good place to bird for a week?
Im from Ontario Canada, and will be in Florida for a week.
Judith Vaughn 06-May-2008 10:38
It was magical to photograph the sandhill nest on Interlochen with you. Your images are priceless gifts that showcase the beauty of our world. THANK YOU CHARLIE!

Nice Gallery
Steve Peffer 08-Nov-2006 21:37
Dan Click and I (both from the Utility Services Department)met you today while seeking the elusive Masked duck. Thank you for pointing out the bird, and for sharing your website with us. These wetlands have been a challenge to manage, but your photos prove how valuable the rewards can be. Awesome photos!
Larry Theetge 02-Jul-2006 12:19
I had the honor of meeting you at the wetlands recently and i am ispired by your work. You can tell by your pictures that you love photography.
Noris Lopez 25-Mar-2006 13:22
¡I loved your pictures! All of them. I loved them so much, they made me want to do the same when I retire, nature photography. It is like looking at God face to face.
Congratulations for such a wonderful and inspiring job.
