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.

J Clark Berlin Anytime English
S Mayo Bethany Weekend English
R Tougias Colchester Anytime English, and of course bird song
I am the author of Birding Western Massachusetts and a birding columnist for New England Newspapers. Birding in Colchester is actually very good, we have wetlands, and upland forests with a variety of rural small farms and suburban birds. Happy to give birding tours and info.
M Aldinger Groton Anytime English
I love to watch the migrating birds and identify their calls.
S Shrader Hartford Anytime English
M Aronson New Haven Weekend English, Dutch, German, Spanish
I live a five minute walk to Connecticut's May Warbler Mecca, East Rock Park. It is a 12 minute drive to the Light House Point fall hawk watch. 15 minutes to the Piping Plover and Least Tern breeding colony in West Haven. I rather enjoy scrappy urban birding and am happy to wander around the industrial weed fields of New Haven or Bridgeport's now closed city dump. If the weather is bad I can take you on a bird tour of Yale University's two art museums or point the way to the Peobody Museum's collection of stuffed ones. I'm happy to try and help you find what you are looking for either by taking you there or suggesting places you might try.
