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 am a professional ornithologist living in the village of Avonlea. Avonlea is only 40 minutes from the city of Regina and is the closet place to the city to see grassland and badland birds in the province. I will provide free advice or guide for a fee. I am the author of the "Atlas Saskatchewan Birds" and coauthor of the upcoming "Birds of Saskatchewan".
I live in Humboldt and have been in Canada for two years from the Philippines. The Quill Lakes are just an hour from Humboldt.
I am a university student in Regina. Regina is within a couple hours drive of several bird refuges (Chaplin, Quill Lakes, Old Wives Lake) and Grasslands National Park. Excellent prairie birding.

I have recently taken up nature photography and am just discovering birds and their habitats. A river runs through our city and the easily accessible surrounding area offers habitat for many birds, spring and fall are best.
Outdoor enthusiast and amateur photographer.

Varies. Sometimes I have great flexibility while other times work takes me away
I work full time but there are times that I can take time off to go birding in the grasslands near where I live. Depending on the time of year we'd see 4-5 prairie sparrows, longspurs, burrowing owls, various hawks including Feruginous. I'm also a naturalist in general and like herptiles and night road work in season.
