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

L Wehrwein Fountain Weekend English
K Hopf Fort Collins Anytime English
I think of Ft Collins as being a well kept secret as far as birding goes. We have miles of access to the Poudre River along a bike trail which traverses woods and fields. A lot of ponds are in the area as well as close to Loveland,CO which has Boyd Lake and miles of access along the Big Thompson River. Horsetooth Mtn Park, Lory State Park, Bobcat Ridge are nearby good birding areas. If one goes East to Pawnee grasslands, different birds are found. I have been a avid birder for years and love to share this appreciation of birds.
