The Bird Watching Club for World Travelers


You don't need to be an expert birder to contact a Pal.  Together you have love for nature, birds, new countries and learning.

These are serious birdwatchers willing to share their time to help you.  It is a privilege to contact them.  Your message should be respectful.

A Birding Pal does not charge a fee, however you should pay for their expenses, transportation costs, entrance fees, meals, etc.

Pals will answer your messages quickly, if they can.  You might select someone who is traveling, so write to more than one Pal, and be patient.  Let us know if someone doesn't answer and we'll check that everything is okay.

Let us know when you are going to meet a Pal, and then let us know how it went.

Happy birding.

There are about 300 bird species in Moldova. Best birding locations are Prut valley, especially Beleu and Manta lakes and Tara Batlanilor (Cormoran's Country) in Padurea Domneasca reservation. Also Nistru valley hosts many species as well as Codru reservation that offers largest wood ecosystem in Moldova. Chisinau is a very green village with a lot of wild birds - best places being Gradina Botanica, Dendrarium, Etnographic Museum Garden, Valea Trandafirilor.

I am a Swiss living in Moldova. Started birding a year ago, go out to the parks of Chisinau and the lakes south of Comrat and Cahul, as well as to neighboring Ukraine and Romania as often as I can. I like to go with others - more learning, more fun!
