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.

Jordan, particularly Aqaba was blessed by being the bottle neck in which the birds migratory pathways meet in, where millions of migratory birds cross over the country and over Aqaba since it is an intercontinental junction between three different continents; Asia, Africa and Europe. 1994, Birdlife International conducted a study to document the important bird areas in the Middle East, where Aqaba and its mountains were selected as one of the seventeenth important bird areas of Jordan. The main important species was recorded in Aqaba is Sociable Lapwing, Ruddy Shelduck, Olive-backed Pipit, White Pelican, Arabian Warbler, Black Bush Robin, Citrin Wagtail, Red-footed Falcon, Sooty Falcon, Lanner Falcon and Barbary Falcon.
