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.
In the departamento of Colonia, Uruguay, hundreds of species of birds (raptors, songbirds, waterfowl, etc.) can be seen in just a few days. We have an historic estancia (www.estanciatierrasanta) to provide accommodation and outfitting for birdwatching tours of any level and interst.
