Local Birdingpal Contacts

Local Birdwatchers

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.

B Qazi Lahore, Punjab Anytime Urdu, English, Punjabi
I live in the famous city of Lahore in Pakistan which is known to be the heart of my country. This city is no suburb or village but a city with approximately 8.5 million people residing in it. Being well educated and well versed in the wildlife and biodiversity of my country I am able to move around inside my city and cities surrounding it as well. I can take people to places like Head Maralla.
I have been talking bird photographs for the last 6 years professionally. I started using a camera when I was around 5 and loved the wildlife. My keen hobby turned into a passion and now I travel all across the country to show people from my country and around the globe the beautiful flora and fauna of my homeland. I have taken trips to Kashmir, Uschalli Lake, Kahbaiki Lake, Saiful Malook Lake, Kalar Kahar, Changa Manga (One of the largest man made jungles). I am well versed and have excellent command on written and spoken English.
I provide full tour packages for birding starting from booking your tickets, to welcoming you, arranging for your accommodation, traveling and food.
