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.

I have been birding ND seriously for nearly 20 years. I am still in the working class, but I may be available weekends with notice. If not, I would answer any inquiries there may be. Good Birding.

I'm a longtime area birder very familiar with Fargo-area birding. My work schedule is not fixed so can frequently guide. If not, I'm certainly available to answer questions and steer you onto birds.

I grew up in southeast ND on a farm, which gave me lots of opportunities to explore the outdoors. I have been birding since the time I was about 10 years old; although much more seriously over the last 10 years. I lived in eastern South Dakota from 1998 until 2005 while attending college. During that time, I became very familiar with eastern SD birding as well. My wife and I currently live in Valley City, ND.
I received my Ph.D. in Biological Sciences (researched waterfowl migrations) from South Dakota State University. Currently, I am an Associate Professor at Valley City State University for 9 months out of the year (Full-time birder the other 3 months). I teach the following courses in Fisheries and Wildlife Science: ORNITHOLOGY, Mammalogy, Ichthyology, Introduction to Fisheries and Wildlife Science, Fisheries and Wildlife Techniques, Advanced Fish Management, and Advanced Wildlife Management. I certainly do not teach all of these courses the same semester. For example, Mammalogy is taught Fall semesters of even years only.
