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.

I started birding in my native country, Canada in 1988 and it has been a passion since then. My tropical birding experience started when we moved to the Yucatan in 2003. Since then we have taken 6 extensive birding trips in 7 of the southern states in Mexico. The best birding areas in our immediate vicinity are Dzibilchaltun, Xcambo, Chuburna, Dzilam de Bravo and Aquaparque in Merida. Further afield are Celestun, Chumbec, Uxmal and Rio Lagartos. I have recorded 292 species in the state and 367 species in the peninsula. Within an hour s drive of my home, I can fairly reliably locate several regional endemics and quasi-endemics such as Yucatan Wren, Mexican Sheartail, Yucatan Bobwhite, Yucatan Jay, Yucatan Flycatcher, and Orange Oriole.
