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.

I recently retired and have more time for birding than while I worked and, therefore do more of it. The central Kentucky area is home to some 200 - 300 species of birds seasonaly. Within a 2 hour drive of my home are many public and open private parcels of land from the 300,000 acre Daniel Boone National Forest to 5 acre local parks.

In season, local breeding specialties include Prothonotary, Prairie, Swainson's, Kentucky, and Cerulean warblers with Henslow and Grasshopper sparrows among others and should not be difficult to locate. Great variety exists during migration as well.

J Carr South Williamson, Kentucky Anytime English
My husband and I own 70+ wooded mountainous terrain and flowing creeks. When we go hiking in our mountain , we often see grouse, barred owls, many warblers, , etc. However, we see most of the birds within our yard: 127 species!

No one can go birding with us without being introduced to wildflowers, butterflies, insects, trees, fungi, etc. In other words, all things natural.

I am an artist and was a full professor of art prior to retirement and I have an art studio now.

I live in the far eastern tip of Kentucky. We keep bees, grow a lot of food in the summer, and love watching the birds from our second floor sunroom.
