Local Birdwatchers

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.

A friend and I spent a week with 'Fano' as our guide traveling all around central and southern Madagascar looking for birds, wildlife and culture. I have traveled independently in 120 countries and Fano turned out to be one of the very best guides/companions ever! He was fluent in Malagasi, German, French and his English was excellent! He seemed to know everyone wherever we went, and was extremely knowledgeable about the customs and wildlife - with an excellent eye for spotting birds and small reptiles that we missed. Moreover, and perhaps the most memorable part of the experience, was Fano's personality - he was always helpful, considerate, sensitive to our different personalities and, most importantly, always FUN! He understood the subtlties of jokes and humor and felt like a long-lasting friend after our one week. I can only give Fano the highest recommendation possible - as a human being, as a guide and as an expert on the flora and fauna of Madagascar. I would, of course, be happy to respond to anyone's further questions re my experience with Fano in Madagascar. Al Lunemann, Coupeville, WA, USA, techno-man(AT)
