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.

Single and multi-day, private, Alaska birding tours! I lead single day trips based out of Fairbanks where we can see many boreal species.

Each day-trip is catered to your interests, whether that's general birding, or targeting regional specialties. Private, multi-day itineraries can encompass the entire state. Want to see Arctic breeders like Yellow-billed Loon, Spectacled Eider, or Bluethroat? How about chasing the rare and elusive Gray-headed Chickadee? I can make it happen. Whether you want a relaxed morning wandering the boreal forest, a fast-paced epic chasing as many rarities as we can find, or to photograph Alaska's birds, the trip is up to you.

Area and hotspots

Boreal Forest, Tundra, Alaska Range, Brooks Range, Arctic

Local birds
Boreal and arctic specialties, Arctic Warbler, Northern Wheatear, Owls
