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.

I'm Soale Amidu from the Northern part of Ghana, where the Mole National Park is found. After I completed Senior High School last year, I remain at home and at times go to watch some of the animals, which interested me most.

I have birded with Kalu during three separate visits to Ghana and have nothing but praise for his bird watching and organisational skills as well as his unfailing good humour. I heartily recommend him to any birders wishing to discover the birds of Ghana, including such hard to see species as Yellow-headed Picathartes. Birdingpal Mike Bowman butor2003(AT)yahoo.fr
I just wanted to feedback to you on a recent trip to Ghana. Marlin Jones and I had a terrific time with Kalu, who was an excellent guide. Everything went smoothly, with no glitches. I saw 80 life birds and Marlin saw 160. Thank you for setting up this terrific guide service. Cheers, Charles H.

Myself and a colleague, Ian Searle contacted Kalu via Birdingpals last year to organise a tour of Ghana. We wanted a reliable, knowledgable guide who could organise our trip, arrange transport and suggest places to stay. We also wanted to see as many species as possible including the Yellow-headed Picathartes. Kalu was a surperb guide as he was extremely knowledgable about the birds of Ghana including their calls and the best sites. We saw an amazing 253 Species in only one week including some of the most difficult species. Kalu knew many of the local reserve officials and was able to gain access for us outside normal visiting hours so we could make an early start some days. He also arranged excellent accommodation and engaged an excellent driver for our trip. In summary we were extremely happy with Kalu’s service, and our journey was real fun. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to visiting Birders.

Dear Kalu.
Thank you for your very nice email. Yes, I did have a cool and nice flight home. And thank you very much for an excellent trip. I was hoping for quite a lot of new birds, but it far exceeded my expectations. It was very successful and well organised. Your ability to find and instantly identify the birds by sight and sound was exceptional. I am very envious of your excellent vision. I can understand your frustration at my not being able to see the birds so quickly and by not being able to catch what you said. I saw 324 birds, over half of them new for me, including many special ones. Brilliant! I think you saw another 5 or 6 that I was not able to see. I would be interested to know the name of that animal we saw that was new for you, at the Forbes's Plover sight. You will see that I have copied Knud at Birdinpals with this email as I wanted him to know about your trip. I will also be telling my friends about the success of the trip, but not too many as I know you want to spend some time with your family. And please pass my appreciation to the driver, Cobby, for his reliability and dedication, especially in not wanting to leave the trip to join his wife at the time of the birth of their second baby.
Thanks again Kalu and I wish you success in the future.
