Tommy D's Birding Expeditions Private Tours

Tommy D's Birding Expeditions Tours (Based Out of Phoenix)

Hire me as your guide to show you a variety of birds or the bird of your choice through the tour of your choice.  Based out of Phoenix and Maricopa County, Arizona.  We have Le Conte's Thrashers, plenty of southwestern birds, Rosy-faced Lovebirds, and much more!

Shorter tours:  Right now, a lot of my afternoons are free and I could meet up with you for a Small Day Tour Plan until the cutoff date below.  Email me at and ask me if you are interested.  

Cutoff date for tours:  March 7th.  I can't take any requests for tours past this date.  If you are interested in a tour past this date, please check back soon.  (Because of my employment status as being full time elsewhere, I can't devote my primary time to guiding and have to put that schedule first).  Please look at the links section on to potentially hire other guides if you want your tour to be arranged much further in advance (I can't blame you at all if you do!)

Tour Types and Fees

Small Day:  This option covers a few hours out of the day for two to three hours.  It can be good for hiking for a few hours to see a general cast of birds, or a shorter owling expedition.  Cost: $120

Half Day:  This covers four to five hours and is perfect for seeking out a few targets or getting a cast of species that can be found in a specific habitat.  Cost: $150

Full Day:  This tour will run from eight to ten hours and is a fun option where we can hit up a variety of places to see a cast of different birds, or we can work up a list of birds to target.  Cost: $250

Extra Long Day:  This tour exceeds the length of the full day and will go for 12-14 hours.  After all, I love being in the field too!  Cost: $300

*If we take my vehicle (which only holds two people), I will charge the entire price of gas on top of the normal fee.  I will also add the cost of my gas money to the tour for however long the distance is driven for me to meet you.  I prefer to take your vehicle.
