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.
I have been having fun birding for 25 years and know the area. Pryor is located on the eastern edge of the prairie and close to the Ozarks, so a good variety of habitat is nearby.
Weekends and from daybreak to 11 a.m. weekdays
Ornithologist, photographer, local nature columnist provides an interesting 3+ mile walk on one of the top birding venues in central OK.
However, we will have to take what the birds decide to give us. This locale in on the Central Flyway, which has a diverse set of birds. It is even better during an El Nino year, with plenty of rough leafed dogwood awaiting fall migrants, and lots of sheltered areas for shy birds. Presently establishing a Green Heron summer colony.
I do not have a car, but can take you to other areas that will give you plenty of other interesting birding in the area. Come for a weekend or a week.
Once you learn what is where, you will not be disappointed with what you will see in central Oklahoma.
The specific time of year has seasonal birds, some of which only show up for a short window of time, and this is a migratory path for the Sandhill Cranes.
I've been living and birding in Tulsa since 2000 and have chaired the Field Trips Committee of the Tulsa Audubon Society www.tulsaaudubon.org, so I'm familiar with where to find birds in any given season all around Tulsa and, indeed, most of Oklahoma. And even if I don't know where to find the bird(s) you're looking for, I probably know who to ask for help. Feel free to contact me if you're planning to visit Tulsa and would like to see some of our birds; I'll even take you there myself, if I'm available while you're here.
If you contact a professional Birdingpal guide you must be prepared to pay a fee for guiding services.
