Birding Southern California...and Beyond!
Contact me to schedule a personalized trip. You may use my Palos Verdes Area Bird Checklist
and/or Southern California Bird Checklist to help you choose your "target species" to round out your
life list. Keep in mind that not all species are here at any given time, and that some require special in
the back to get a sense of what might be around during your visit.) It takes about three full days (plus
a pelagic trip or two) to fully cover the varied habitats and specialty species found here. You may by
your guide, according to the season in which you visit. If you are interested in regional butterflies,
dragonflies, or flora, additionally or exclusively, you're in luck!

How to Book Your Birding Trip
Updated March 8, 2013
I will be happy to help suggest local lodging specific to your requirements and budget, and to
suggest birding locations wherever you might travel beyond the scope of my own range before or
after our trip together. If you fly into Southern California, I can pick you up from LAX (Los Angeles
International) or Long Beach airport and drop you off at the local lodging of your choice.
| The number of people in your party|
| The dates that can work for you|
| Target species, if you wish to include them|
| Whether or not you wish me to provide transportation and/or lodging information|
| Where you will be staying, if you already have that planned|
The details: I charge $150 for a full day, 1 or 2 people or family. Add $50 for each additional person.
$75 transportation fee if I provide transportation in my vehicle (up to 3 passengers; highly
recommended in the traffic and freeway maze of Southern California.) If we use your rental vehicle
and your insurance stipulates that an additional driver is covered, I will drive at no charge. I ask that
you cover the cost of admission to any parks or preserves, when applicable. I will supply water and
drinks, but greatly appreciate if you would cover the cost of meals, if we stop to dine during our day.
To reserve a trip: I request that you send me a $50, non-refundable deposit, no later than 60 days
before our trip, payable to Martin Byhower. Please contact me by email or phone for the correct
The bottom line: This is your trip, and I will make every effort to meet and exceed your expectations!
