Using the Birdingpal resources you must agree to the following: If you contact a local Birdingpal and make arrangement to go birding, you should note it is common courtesy to make sure you show up for the appointment. If for any reason you are unable to do this, the least you must do is contacting the local Pal right away.
Please note that most Birdingpals are serious birdwatchers. It is a privilege to contact them, and your message should reflect it. A local Pal does not get paid, but should he/she 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.
We want to hear about your experiences with Birdingpals.
Please contact us with any comments or suggestions you have.

Haifa is located on the coast line, a 30 minute drive from fish ponds on the coast
line and good place for waders. Also not far from the Yizrael Valley, good for raptor migration in the spring and autumn.
I am an amateur birder. Happy for company and happy to learn.

I'm an amature bird watcher. The Dead Sea Rift and Jordan Valley are within 1 hour drive. Around Jerusalem there are lots of different habitats, ranging from Mediterranean mountain scrub to the extremely arid.

I have been a birdwatcher for the better part of 17 years. Most of the time I've spent in north Europe(Sweden mostly) and I'm very well acquainted with the bird fauna in that part of the world. I now live in Jerusalem and would be very happy to find someone to go birding with. I do not have a car.

I am 49 married and a father of 2. Like birds watching and to photograph them.
Am amateur birder for 30+ years, I live along the northern mediterranean coast and work at Maagan Michael- one of the hottest birding sopts in Israel.
Different habitats clustered here supply a good variety of birds especially during migration.
Pals are most welcome and make a good excuse to leave the desk for some proper birding!
My hotspot is Maagan Michael, one of the best birding spots along the mediterranean coast. A little to the north in Nachsholim- same habitats, sometimes better birding.
To the east is Yizrael valley with open fields and some good reservoirs with special ducks during the winter time.
