How it works You can book guide services with this guide by selecting from available dates above, or you can book through the general calendar.

For guides who only work a specific region (such as Phoenix, Prescott, Verde Valley, or Portal/Chiricahuas) you’ll need to book directly on their calendar as they aren’t listed in the general calendar

All you have to do is submit the form with your contact information and any special requests, and your guide will make contact with you directly, usually within 24 hours, to arrange your time afield.

There is no additional charge for using AZ-Birding; you’ll pay your guide directly at her or his usual rate. Learn more about our guides and what to expect.
