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.

Active birder from the age of about 12. Lived in Belgium then on the French/Swiss border, from 2015-2020 in Dakar, Senegal, now (since March 2020) in Vientiane, Laos. Regularly travelling throughout Africa, south-east Asia and elsewhere for my work with a public health NGO. Despite what one may read, Laos is fantastic for birding, especially if one is keen to go off the beaten track. There are several good birding sites that can be covered on day trips or during short trips away from the capital. Happy to provide advice on finding some of the target species: Bare-faced Bulbul, Sooty Babbler, Limestone Leaf Warbler, Jerdon's Bush Chat, etc.
