Birding Pal is well established global website for traveling birders to contact local birders. We can help you find information about birdwatching and someone to go with.

We list local birdwatchers, from around the world, who are willing to go birdwatching with you.  As well we list local professional birdwatching guides who will take you birdwatching for a fee.  And we list great places to stay that are near hotspots and are "birder friendly."

Going on a business trip, to a conference or on vacation?  Will you have a bit of extra time?  Don't waste it.  Go birdwatching and enjoy the safety and knowledge of a local birder.
You do not need to be an expert birder to contact a Pal.  These are serious birdwatchers and they want to help.  It is a privilege to contact them, and your message should reflect decient respect.

A Birding Pal does not get paid. However, should they offer to take you out birding using their own vehicle, it would be courteous to pay for the fuel.  A lunch and/or a small gift would also be appropriate.  Something as simple as a souvenir of your country, or a pin from your local birding club.

Pals will answer your messages quickly, if they can.  You might write to someone who is traveling.  Write to more than one Pal, and be patient.  Let us know if someone doesn't answer and we'll check that they are okay.  And let us know when you are going to met, with who, and then let us know how it went.
