Frederick was an author and Ornithologist. From early childhood he was interested in natural history, but lack of funds prevented him from getting far in his schooling. Before he reached manhood, he had stuffed and mounted a collection of local birds. This interested Alexander Agassiz of the Museum at Harvard University. Later his collection was bought by the University and that gave him the means to begin his lifes work. He collected birds in Florida and explored the Lake Okechobee region for the Smithsonian Institution and wrote "Forest and Stream" under the pen name of Fred Beverly.

Later, he collected in the Lesser Antilles, discovering twenty-two species of birds new to science, two of which were named after him. A fly-catcher, Myiarchus Oberi, and an Oriole, Icterus Oberi.

He made several trips to Mexico, later to Spain, North Africa, South America, and again to the West Indian Islands. He was a prolific writer and a collection of his books will be found in the Beverly Public Library. In 1908 he entered the real estate business in Hackensack, N.J. and remained there
until his death.

He published "Camps in the Caribees" ‎(1879-1884)‎ and "Travels in Mexico" ‎(1884)‎ and several Juvenile books.
