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.

M Straubhaar Interlaken/Thun, Bern, Berner Oberland Anytime German, English
I have been birding for many years. The Berner Oberland is a great choice for birding. With lakes, forest and moutains you will have a excellent chance to find some very interesting birds. And of course a stunning view of the Alps. If I have time i like to go birding with birdwatcher from around the globe. Otherwise I will give you an idea where you could find the birds.

  Since I was a child I am fascinated by birds and animals in particular. I will enjoy going bird watching with you. In my spare time I like reading a good book or watch a good movie. But my passion is really drawing, there is not really a moment, when I am not scribbling something on paper. In the meantime I work as a teacher and used to lecure at university. I love travelling and exploring cities on my own, preferably with no plan and no destination... Area:
