|You don't need to be an expert birder to contact a Pal. However these are serious birdwatchers who are willing to help. It is a privilege to contact them. Your message should reflect decent respect.
A Birding Pal does not charge a fee, however you should pay for their expenses, transportation costs, entrance fees, meals, etc.
Pals will answer your messages quickly, if they can. You might write to someone who is traveling, so write to more than one Pal, and be patient. Let us know if someone doesn't answer and we'll check that everything is okay.
Let us know when you are going to meet a Pal, and then let us know how it went.

My friend and I will be in the Baltimore area from Aug. 1st until the 13th and we'd love to go birding in the early mornings.
We both are long time birders in the Florida Quays but have not been to your area yet.
Water fowl is what we're use to, so we're excited to be traveling to Maryland.
We both can walk a fair bit on a level hike, five hours or so. Do you like to go early?
The hotspots in your area sound great. We'd like to see the Park most but they all sound terrific.
And we were wondering if you had recordings to play.
If your interested in guiding us we'd look forward to meeting you. We can contribute to gas and take you to lunch.
Thank you for being a Pal,
Vince (& Knud)
|"... Today, though,
I was more concerned with chasing the flashy types.
I have connected through Birding Pal
(a website where birders can find contacts in other countries)
with two excellent Costa Rican birders, R. Orozco and J. Fernandez, and we're on a mission this week to track down some of Costa Rica's most eye-catching beauties."
