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.

M Zelenietz Dartmouth and area Anytime English
I've birded for about 25 years, and am familiar with a number of hotspots on the Dartmouth side of Halifax Harbour. Teaching in a local university provides me with lots flexibility in the May-August period, when our migrants arrive, breed, or pass through. I've benefited from local guides (volunteer and professional) around the world, and would like to help others appreciate our local avian fauna and natural beauty.

The Annapolis Valley has numerous birding areas, including the shorebird concentration at Grand Pre in Fall, several provincial parks with varied habitat, and is not too far from the migrant hotspots at Brier Island, Cape Sable Island etc.

I am available most weekdays and some weekends after mid-September, 2013. I live 30 minutes from Halifax International airport, and can often provide pick-up and travel in return for gas.

I love to go birding, and travel all around the province hiking and looking at birds.

I have recently retired from teaching, am on the board of directors for Nature Canada, and also secretary of the NS Bird Society. Nova Scotia has many breeding birds, and also attracts shorebirds, vagrants and strays.
