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.
Your Email Address:
When you contact a Birdingpal looking for advice and/or information, you should have some patience.
It is not always possible for a Birding Pal to respond right away. If you don't get a reply please write to us.
If you are listed at BirdingPal.org you do have a passphrase.
Note I'm a member of the Delta Naturalist Society which has a weekly birding outing referred to as the Delta Nats Casual Birding group or DNCB. See our outing reports and links to pictures at dncb.wordpress.com
