Dear Dubi,

I am an ornithologist working at the National Aviary in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where we recently have acquired a pair of Palawan Peacock Pheasants. I am just now writing a short article about the species for our local newspaper (I write a biweekly article called "Let's talk About Birds"), and I always like to include a good photograph or two with the article (for use in both the newsprint and online versions of the article). Our birds are just two years old, so the male is not yet in "high" plumage, and he has not yet shown signs of displaying, so I can't get a good photograph myself. Would you consider letting me have one or two photos (ca. 1MB file size) that I could submit with the article? I can promise you will be credited. I would need these ASAP. Many thanks for your consideration. Best, Bob

Fantastic pictures and especialy those from New Guinea, birds of paradise. I have tried to photograph them myself but unfortualy i was not able to see them at the time. I was able to photograph some other nice birds but my main goal was not reached.

Best regards from,

Hola Dubi, estoy buscando un picaflor que se le conoce con el nombre de "Siwarsituy" o "Siwar Situy" en la región andina y especialmente en el Cusco. No estamos seguros si se trata del Sparkling violet-ear (Coruscans Colibrí). Se conoce que lo llaman "picaflor turquesa". También necesito saber cuánto he de pagar por los derechos de autor para usar su foto en un el empaque de un CD que estamos produciendo. ¡felicitaciones por la foto Sparkling violet-ear.

Great shots. Question about where you saw the Helmeted Vanga? Thinking of going to Madagascar and would love to see it and. Any help? Also, thinking about trying for the Pochard. What was the road like?

Dear Dubi,
Super Fotos !!!

I am a Hobby-Zoologist from Austria and I work on a list of all bird species (only for myself and personal use). I want to add to all the animals in the list a picture, so I want to ask you, if I am allowed, to copy some pictures from your picture gallery by Internet bird collection and by pbase in my lists - only for private use! I will not create a homepage, I will not sell the photos and I will not publish the photos - I only want to add them to my lists.
I am looking forward to a permission to copy some photos,

Yours faithfully

Dear Dubi Shapiro,

In the last two weeks I've sent and re-sent you an e-mail that contains a link to the PDF of the ecotourism guide for northern Apurimac region (Peru) you've kindly contributed to with some of your excellent photos. Could you please take a look at this message (I've sent it to your hotmail account) and give me a quick replying regarding my request.

Thanks a lot and best wishes,

Dear Mr Shapiro

I co-manage the Darwin Initiative project to save the Madagascar pochard Aythya innotata on behalf of a partnership between Durrell, Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust, The Peregrine Fund, Asity Madagascar and the Government of Madagascar. I in particular have a long history with all of the Island’s ducks (my PhD is on Madagascar teal Anas bernieri and Meller’s duck A. melleri) and Durrell now has a sister organisation, Durrell Madagascar based in Antananarivo, which continues to work with all the ducks in various locations. I have seen some of your photos through your website and would be extremely grateful for your permission to use some of them in our educational material and reports. None of these are produced for financial gain and acknowledgement will always be given to the photographer. I am initially interested in a photograph of Meller’s duck for a poster for use at Lac Alaotra and will be jointly made by Durrell and Madagascar Wildlife Conservation and produced by McRae Foundation for our work in Alaotra. The photo will be acknowledged but the poster will only likely be seen at Alaotra. If you have any questions about use etc, Lance and I can give you more information on the project. If it is at all possible to use one or more pochard photos in future reports I would be very grateful and I have attached a copy of the Year 1 annual report on the Madagascar pochard project.

I have sent this message by private e-mail too but may have used an old address.

Many thanks in advance.

Best wishes,

Glyn Young

First, congratulation, your pics are very incredibles, really really, it's the first time i see quality pics about Malagasy birds.
I'm Hery RAJOHARISON and i am malagasy People and i'm birdwawatcher, and i organize birdwatching on the Boeny region. But now I build for 2012 a villagers community project. The main project is the ECOTOURISM - Birdwatching (Wetland) and dry fish and shrimps. The project is located at Mataitromby inside the Betsiboka Delta.
We need to do sensibilisation for Malagasy people for loving his nature, birdwatching
We must demonstrate them that it's beutifull. Becase we hope malagasy townsman for contribute for his nature directly by money crontribution to our organisation or inderectly comning in tour with us.
That is a way i want to ask you if it's possible for using your pics to make a malagasy sensibilisation slide show.We do not use them for direct commercial use but some percent of our profits will go to the villagers community (MATAITROMBY- ANKARAFANTSIKA- KINKONY...)
Thank you in advance
Best Regards
