Send a message to a Birding Pal

You don't need to be an expert birder to contact a Pal. However these are serious birdwatchers who are willing to help. It is a privilege to contact them. Your message should reflect decent respect.

A Birding Pal does not charge a fee, however you should pay for their expenses, transportation costs, entrance fees, meals, etc.

Pals will answer your messages quickly, if they can. You might write to someone who is traveling, so write to more than one Pal, and be patient. Let us know if someone doesn't answer and we'll check that everything is okay.

Let us know when you are going to meet a Pal, and then let us know how it went.

Happy birding.

Birding Pal

Agustin Esmoris - Birding Puerto Madryn I live with my family in Puerto Madryn, Chubut, Patagonia Argentina.

For more than 15 years I have dedicated my time to nature photography. This activity has led me to visit many regions including: Falkland Islands, Galapagos Islands, Canada and Easter Island, among others. My images have been published in various media, such as calendars, magazines and books (including the National Geographic).

I work with the most prestigious Nature Photography Agencies (e.g. Minden Pictures (USA) and Ardea (UK)).

I'm a passionate birder. I started birding when I was a kid with my grandpa and my dad. Since then I enjoy this beautiful activity more and more everyday.

I love guiding birders and photographers to the places that I know and love the most.
