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.

Hey folks - I live in the Toronto area and during the summers in Algonquin Provincial Park in Central Ontario. I've been a dedicated international birder for many years and know this area well. I am willing to travel to various locales in Ontario for birding. Southern Ontario is one of the greatest places on Earth to observe migrating wood-warblers, with 30+ species possible in some locales, plus vireos, orioles, grosbeaks and other passerines. In Winter, it is prime for many species of owls including Snowy (annual) and Boreal in some years. Lake Ontario is a major wintering area for many species of waterfowl and Niagara Falls is one of the best places to observe gulls in the world. Over ten species can be seen in a day. Algonquin is great for breeding wood-warblers and hosts Northern-affinity birds such as Gray Jay, Black-backed Woodpecker, Boreal Chickadee and Spruce Grouse. It's probably the easiest place to see Spruce Grouse on Earth.
