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.

Lago de Yojoa
English, some Spanish
Located on the beautiful Lago de Yojoa, great birding and nature study. Close to Sierra Azul Merambra and Santa Barbara National Park. I am a single female, retired in Honduras and would enjoy birding with anyone who has an interest in nature with a special interest in birds. I live on the lake and the birding and view from my deck is great.
If you contact a professional Birdingpal guide you must be prepared to pay a fee for guiding services.
Copan, Western Honduras
I am Alexander 29 years old, a birdwatching guide for 5 years. I am a member of the Honduran Ornithological Club and know over 500 hundred different bird species in Honduras. My main tours is mornings in Copan, but if you are planning long tours, we can go to Olancho, wetlands of Choluteca, the north coast and special birds in the Pacific higlands.
Los Naranjos, Lago de Yojoa
English, basic Spanish, some French, German
I am a 61 year old Englishman living in Honduras and a self taught birder. Nature and travel were always my major interests and I became specifically interested in birds in India in the early 90's. At the time I was working half a year in France and spending half a year travelling, mainly in India where I learnt my birding and have seen 535 species. I have birded in Great Britain, France, India, Thailand, Laos, Chile, Peru, Belize and Honduras. My world list numbers 1,446 species. I first visited Honduras in 2006 and fell in love with the Lago de Yojoa area, a birding hotspot with 447 species available. In 2007 I settled in the village of Los Naranjos and became the tourist guide at D & D Breweries lodge. So far I have seen 456 species here. I am a member of the Honduran Ornithological club.
