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.

If you would like to go birding in the Netherlands, please contact me and let me know what species you would like to see. I will report back the possibilities for any of them and suggest an itenerary. I'm also interested in mammals, dragonflies (and to lesser extent butterflies too) for which tailormade trips could be done as well.
