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.

I`m watching the birds, for example: Azure Tit (Parus cyanus), Aquatic Warbler (Acrocephalus paludicola) etc.
If you contact a professional Birdingpal guide you must be prepared to pay a fee for guiding services.
I still act as advisor to birdwatchers who visit Ukraine, and give a lot local contacts to people for free. But sometimes I am busy with other clients and can't be real pal for birders except really free days when bird variety is not too big. I provide services like field guide for more than 10 years and my experience now is rather high. The approximate price is about 100 Euro per day plus payment for petrol. This price is the same for small groups 1-4 persons.
