The Bird Watching Club for World Travelers

Jordan

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.

Note
Jordan, particularly Aqaba was blessed by being the bottle neck in which the birds migratory pathways meet in, where millions of migratory birds cross over the country and over Aqaba since it is an intercontinental junction between three different continents; Asia, Africa and Europe. 1994, Birdlife International conducted a study to document the important bird areas in the Middle East, where Aqaba and its mountains were selected as one of the seventeenth important bird areas of Jordan. The main important species was recorded in Aqaba is Sociable Lapwing, Ruddy Shelduck, Olive-backed Pipit, White Pelican, Arabian Warbler, Black Bush Robin, Citrin Wagtail, Red-footed Falcon, Sooty Falcon, Lanner Falcon and Barbary Falcon.
