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.

Good birding here during spring migration - lots of warblers. I do banding in the spring and fall - I band Saw-whet Owls Oct. to Nov. in the fall. I have been birding for 38+ years and I do 75% of my birding by ear.

I have been avidly birding for 8 years. We live in the northeastern high mountains. The birds here are the usual WV birds plus high elevation birds such as Blackburnian and Magnolia Warblers, Dark-eyed Juncos and Golden-crowned Kinglets. We have had Golden-winged Warblers nesting on our property but they seem to be being replaced by Blue-winged Warblers. Any season can produce good birds.

D Courtney Morgantown Anytime English, some french
I am an avid birdwatcher with interest in photography. Familiar with most local and statewide birding hotspots. Glad to assist with locating or providing info on any special interest birds. The Morgantown area hosts good numbers/variety of breeding warblers and winter visiting waterfowl. Both seasons of migration can be good for passerine migrants.
