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.

My name is Anthony Levesque. I lived in Guadeloupe since 1998. I studied "Wildlife Management" and "Nature Protection" in France from 1991 to 1995. I worked as a ranger at the Petite-Terre Nature Reserve from 2001 to 2009. From 2009 to 2014 I've been working as a Wildlife Consultant for the National Hunting and Wildlife Agency.
I'm now working for my own company: "Levesque Birding Enterprise". I'm an active birdwatcher and I discovered almost 50 species never before recorded in Guadeloupe and banded more than 10,000 birds.
Among the 280 species recorded, there is one species strictly endemic in Guadeloupe: the Guadeloupe Woodpecker, but there are 13 other species endemic in the West Indies to discover here. I will put my experience at your service to show you the specialities of Guadeloupe.
I never failed to show the Guadeloupe Woodpecker to birders and I can normally show 80% of the specialities in a single day.
