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 have lived on the Magdalen Islands all my life and have been birding since 1991. We find on average 200 species a year. The total species recorded so far for the islands is over 320 species. The endangered breeding species are: Piping Pplover (only nesting grounds remaining in Quebec ) the Roseate Tern and the Horned Grebe, Nelson's Sharp-tailed Sparrow. Also nesting on the island is a small colony of Black-headed Gulls. Bird Rock and Brion Islands located 32 and 16 kilometres from the main islands offer spectacular views of the many Northern Gannets, Common and Thick-billed Murres also Black-legged Kittiwakes and Atlantic Puffins. The thick-billed Murre colony is the most southernly in North America. Also a good numbers of shorebirds (26 species) are seen during each fall migration (August-September).
