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 have been guiding bird watchers and birders in Mongolia since 2012. Here is a testimonial:
My guide Bayanmunkh was very knowledgeable about nature and culture and spoke excellent English. He was able to find and show me many of the birds on my wish-list.

Last year, we (11 participants from Germany) had a wonderful birdwatching tour in central Mongolia (24 days, 3 cars, 2400 km, more than 200 bird species). Dr. Sundev Gombobaatar was our professional birdwatching guide. He is an excellent ornithologist and was a good guide (dependable, hardworking, astute, punctual).
