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.

The island of Montreal is surrounded by nature areas where birds can be seen congregating especially during the migratory season. There is also an urban forest on Mount Royal in the middle of the city where many birds can be spotted (hawks, creepers woodpeckers).

I am an archaeologist and a Scout leader so I have long enjoyed nature and the outdoors. I am a casual member of Bird Protection Quebec which organizes many outings and activities which are free and open to the public.

Areas where I like to bird are Parc des Rapides (ducks, osprey, eagles, kestrel, kingfisher) Ile Bizzard (ducks, bittern, sandpipers, grebes) Mount Royal Cemetery (Eastern Bluebird boxes are set up) and Summit Woods (warblers in May & there is a resident Screech Owl).
