Local Birdingpal Contacts

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.

P Hardy Americus Anytime English
I have been an active birder since about 2000. Bird photography is a special hobby of mine. Americus is located in the southwest part of Georgia and is mostly an agricultural area. Being almost retired, I still do some part-time work that helps pay for birding trips to new and exciting areas.

C Muise Barnesville Anytime English
I'm a bird bander and am happy to have folks visit us. It's a great opportunity to see some species up close. On occasion we catch species that even we are excited about. Most of my work is in grasslands, so many of the species I catch are very secretive and hard to see otherwise.

T Hyde Tucson Anytime English
Southern Arizona has a great diversity of birds, plants and wildlife. The Sky Islands provide a unique opportunity to visit a variety of habitats as well as see some species (plants and animals) whose northern range limits are reached in southern Arizona. I am a general biologist and I love exploring the local areas and learning new things. I am by no means an expert in anything in particular, but I can try and help. I was a birding pal in Southern California, so if you have any questions about that area I can help as well. LGBT friendly

Interests: Nature: birdwatching, nature, photography, hiking, plants, herps, mammals
