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.

New Orleans, LA, USA, LA
A skilled photographer specializing in hummingbirds in flight and exotic birds from multiple countries particularly S. America
Coastal Louisiana has LOTS of waterbirds, wading birds, shorebirds, etc. I'm an avid birder, but have lived here less than one year, and am still figuring the place out. As a college professor (in social sciences, not biology), my schedule is quite flexible.
Metairie [suburb of New Orleans]
I am a retired naturalist - author, lecturer, birding tour organizer. Southeastern Louisiana offers a wealth of birdlife as well as other natural history subjects. Since 1979, I have conducted research concerning the various species of hummingbirds that spend the winter months in this area.
Hummingbirds [7 or more species in winter season], Swallow-tailed Kite, Painted Bunting, Herons, Egrets, Ibis, Roseate Spoonbills
Interests: Nature: nature in general, birdwatching, butterflies, gardening
Visit: outdoors, nature spot, beach, lake, ocean
Near some of the top birding spots in the world and one of the top 10 in the US, High Island, Texas known for Spring migrations. Also near Sabine NWR, Cameron Prairie NWR, Rockefeller NWR, and Big Thicket NWR. I live 23 miles from the Texas Border and 38 miles from the Gulf coast. More a bird photographer than a birder, but know where they are. I travel a lot so if I am in a dead area it may take a couple of days to respond.
If you contact a professional Birdingpal guide you must be prepared to pay a fee for guiding services.
