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.
Your Email Address:
When you contact a Birdingpal looking for advice and/or information, you should have some patience.
It is not always possible for a Birding Pal to respond right away. If you don't get a reply please write to us.
If you are listed at BirdingPal.org you do have a passphrase.

Note Authentic, affordable, and professional that's precisely the approach that I bring to a birding adventure. I've been providing highly personalized birdwatching and bird photography services in Costa Rica for almost 10 years.
I can create itineraries for every kind of trip, ranging from day tours to hotspots around the Northern Part of Costa Rica to more extensive, custom-made experiences that can take you to any other region of this megadiverse country.
I can provide small discounts to all Birding Pal Members.
