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 am a student at the University of Riga. I study in the capital city, but my free
time I spend in nature in my area. Ornithology is my hobby and my future profession. I know the area of Western Latvia - areas around city of Liepaja, Kuldiga, Skrunda and Aizpute quite good. Very interesting places for birdwatching are the Western Latvia coast line, where thousands of ducks, gulls, loons and others birds are migrating to the North in April and Maye.

If you contact a professional Birdingpal guide you must be prepared to pay a fee for guiding services.
