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.

Beautiful mountains meet the Atlantic Ocean. Evergreen and deciduous woods, meadows, and home of Acadia National Park. Great birding and summer climate.

S Davis Biddeford, ME Anytime English
I am a birding enthusiast and I love to go out as much as I can. There are some really neat hotspots in Biddeford/Kennebunk and it seems like I'm always finding something new.

I'm very cheerful and I enjoy birding with others and I look forward to meeting new people and learning new things.

I have a flexible work schedule, but I need reasonable notice to verify.
