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 am wildlife (and more specifically, bird) photographer, and also blog. I've added the links to my photostream and blog at the bottom. The closest bird sanctuary, Inglewood Bird Sanctuary, is probably well known to at least visitors to the area. Banff National Park, Peter Loughheed Provincial Park, Dinosaur Provincial Park, and the Important Bird Area, Frank Lake, are within an hour to two hours drive from here, and I am well versed in the bird life in all of these areas. I've been birding in the Calgary area for 3 years, and leading guided walks with the Friends of Fish Creek Provincial Park for 2. I've got extensive knowledge of the Calgary area, and have seen over 250 species within the Calgary area, and nearly 300 in Alberta. website: photos:
