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.
We want to hear about your experiences with Birdingpals.
Please contact us with any comments or suggestions you have.

A volunteer at Agahozo Shalom youth village and a dedicated novice birdwatcher.>
I have moved but I can answer questions.
I have relocated from Rwanda and can no longer serve as a BirdingPal there. I am happy to offer information to those interested, but am no longer on the ground there.
I was a volunteer at Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village. I worked with the high school science department, teach carpentry, and I sponsored an environmental club into birdwatching.
The youth village I worked at
has about 58 hectares of cultivation/residential/lost-cultivation land and so, my wife, another volunteer and I found close to 100 species of birds on the property with some living and many visiting.
I spend a lot of my free time looking for birds and would be happy to go birding with you!>
