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.

  John C. Taylor Jr. Las Vegas Anytime English
  My personal birding started in 1964, at college. Since then, I have lived and birded in South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan and various locales around the United States.

My only functional language is American English. Now 75 years old, I am a retired airline pilot, and spend most of my time either reading or playing golf.

I would not characterize myself as an expert, but an enthusiastic novice. I carry a Swarovski 20-60x80mm scope, and Canon 10x30 IS binoculars, and have access to additional optics if needed.

$50 for half day and $150 for a run up the mountain. These estimates are based on mileage, my time and fuel costs and entry fees to local venues.
