Welcome to DBG - Birdwalks
We encourage you to join a team of expert birders for a birdwalk in the
Desert Botanical Garden (DBG) in Phoenix, Arizona.
Here is your invitation to these birdwalks.
We also present the weekly DBG - Birdwalks Birdlists. A new list is created for each birdwalk1. Each list contains a complete list of all bird and other interesting animal observations made during the birdwalk2,3.
When you can come on a birdwalk:
The birdwalks are held every Monday morning year-round, except when July 4 or December 25 falls on a Monday. The starting time varies depending on the season. During the summer months, May through September, the birdwalks begin at 7:00 AM. During the cooler months, October through April, the birdwalks begin at 8:00 AM.
Birders all meet at the garden entrance. If you miss the start of the birdwalk, just come on into the garden and join the group. Staff and volunteers will be glad to direct you to the location of the group. It is the usual practice for the birdwalks to begin along the Desert Wildflower Loop Trail. The entrance to this trail is directly west of the Garden Admissions area. Here is information showing typical Birdwalk Distances .
You can view live weather camera images from the roof of the DBG Webster Center looking toward Barnes Butte. Click this link to see these views: DBG-Weather Camera Views. You can also learn about the local Phoenix area weather conditions from this web page.
Browsing for Birds:
During two different Safaris, the elusive Firefox was spotted in the distance through our Chrome-ringed telescope while we were Exploring the jungles of the Internet in search of the mysterious Thunderbird.
1. We use the single word "birdwalk" to uniquely identify this kind of walking about, birdwatching activity. We believe that using the separate two words "bird" and "walk" do not lend the appropriate status to this widely practiced birdwatching activity.
2. You can print any list.
3. You can create a Bookmark or save the URL for any list for direct viewing using your browser.
