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.

R McDermott Boulder, Utah Almost anytime English
I have lived in southern Utah for two years, previously from Pittsburgh, PA.

I have gotten quite familiar with the local birds by sight and sound, and have found reliable locations for many of the region's specialties. I go birding just about every day in some of the prettiest places imaginable, and I'd love to show any of the countless tourists that come through this area some of the local birds.

J Limberty Kanab Weekend English
I am a budding birder, self-taught, and have birded on my own throughout a handful of states in the US. I'm no expert, but my love of birds and birding take me outdoors quite a bit to enjoy our avian friends while continuously adding to my life list. Currently I am only available for birding on Wednesday and Thursdays.

I'm located right between the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge and Antelope Island. I'm a 37 year old male and I bird almost daily. I work full time and although weekends are better, I don't mind burning a vacation day here and there. I will scout areas prior to birding to make your visit more fruitful.

Ogden is nestled between the Great Salt Lake and the Wasatch Mountains making for a great diversity of birds within a reasonably close area.

  R. Bradley Salt Lake City Anytime English, German
  I have been birding about 12 years. I live in a suburb of Salt Lake City. I am semi-retired and have a somewhat flexible schedule. I love birding although I don’t get out as much as I used to.
I have birded in Utah, California, SE Arizona, Texas, Florida, New York, Indianapolis, Hawaii, and a few places in Europe and the Caribbean.

I enjoy meeting new people and like to return the favors granted me when birding in other communities.

Area Birds:

Mr Bradley was so kind in Salt Lake City.
