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 a retired Obstetrician with a life long birding hobby. Have over 700 for ABA area and over 5000 for world. I am willing to assist other birders with info re Kingston area which is rich in migrating and breeding birds. Kingston is at the origin of the St. Lawrence river as it flows from Lake Onatario. The Canadian shield area north of the city has breeding Cerulean, Golden-wing Warbler, Louisiana Waterthrush and Yellow-throated Vireo. Amherst island has breeding Wilsons Phalarope and Upland Sandpiper.. Amherst can be good for Saw-whet, Long-eared and other Owls some winters. Kingston lies on migration routes for Brant in May and Greater Scaup in March. Prince Edward Point bird observatory is about 90 minutes drive from Kingston.
