Send a message to a Birding Pal
Birdingpal.org


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.

Note
I have recently moved to the Green Valley area from British Columbia, Canada, where I also volunteered as a Birding Pal. Prior to the move, my wife and I spent part of the winters here as " snowbirders ". I have birded S.E. Arizona extensively, as well, at other times of the year.

I have been an active birder for about 30 years, and have birded all parts of North America from St. Lawrence Island, in Alaska, in the extreme North West to Florida and Texas in the South East.

Green Valley is directly opposite the Santa Rita Mountains which holds the world famous Madera, and Florida Canyons. Other local hotspots I regularly visit include all areas from Green Valley South and East to Patagonia, West to the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge, and North to Tucson, and the Santa Cruz Flats.

Depending on the time of year, there are a great number of birds that spend all or part of the year in this area. Some of the most sought after include Elegant Trogon, Black capped Gnatcatcher, Rufous backed Robin, Thick- billed Kingbird, Whiskered Screech Owl, Elf Owl, Mexican Whip-poor-Will, Violet crowned Hummingbird, Yellow billed Cuckoo, Sulphur bellied Flycatcher, Arizona Woodpecker, Summer and Hepatic Tanagers, and of course, the elusive Montezuma Quail to name just a few.

Although I am always a birder first, I am also interested in bird photography, and am always willing to spend the time on a bird to get the best possible photo. Other interests of mine include hiking the myriad of great trails we have in this area. I am also a bit of a " gym rat " to try to stay in shape in support of my birding passion. Road biking also helps to keep my " blood flowing ".
