Birding BeijingLast Updated 26 January 2018Botanical Gardens北京植物园A Site GuideOverviewThe Botanical Gardens is a good all-year round birdingdestination but is perhaps at its best in winter. It is a good place to seesome of Beijing’s special birds, including CHINESE NUTHATCH,BEIJING BABBLER, PLAIN LAUGHINGTHRUSH and YELLOWBELLIED TIT. In spring and autumn, the ridge at the back of thegardens (to the north) can be good for visible migration, includingpasserines and raptors (GREATER SPOTTED, IMPERIAL, STEPPE andGOLDEN EAGLES have been seen from here in the same day inOctober). In early winter, it is a good site for waxwings (if it is aninvasion year), winter thrushes (NAUMANN’S, DUSKY, REDTHROATED and BLACK-THROATED) and buntings (YELLOWTHROATED, TRISTRAM’S, LITTLE etc). Other unusual, or difficult tosee species in Beijing that have been encountered here includeCHINESE TAWNY OWL, EURASIAN BULLFINCH (the firstdocumented Beijing record), VARIED TIT and RED-BREASTEDFLYCATCHER.The gardens can be very busy at weekends and during holidays,in particular in Spring when the blossom is very popular withBeijingers. However, despite the high visitor numbers, it is relativelyeasy to get away from the masses, especially if one hikes up the hill tothe north. This ridge is worth the 45-minute steep hike - it can beexcellent. The road at the top is the best place to see PLAINBotanical Gardens Site Guide, Page 2

In winter 2012/2013 the ridge hosted well over 50PALLAS’S ROSEFINCHES (an exceptional influx but this species isprobably annual here). It is a rewarding site at any time of year.If you visit, please send your sightings Gardens Site Guide, Page 3

Birding BeijingLast Updated 26 January 2018Hints and Tips:CHINESE NUTHATCH: the most reliable areas are in the pinesclose to the conservatory (near centre of map) and the pines to thenortheast of the park around the arboretum.BEIJING BABBLER and PLAIN LAUGHINGTHRUSH: the mostreliable area is on the ridge to the north of the gardens. Walk norththrough the park through Cherry Valley and alongside a small stream.At the northern end of the park there is toilet block on the right handside (with a sign for a tea shop). Just before the toilet block, there is anarrow concrete road that branches off to the right and up. Follow thisroad for 100m or so until the road ends at a wall. To the right, there isa path that runs up through the scrubby wood. Take this path. Afterabout 15-20 minutes you will reach a road. Cross the road andcontinue along the path as it runs, now steeply, for a further 10 minutesuntil you reach a second road. If you have not encountered theBabblers or Laughingthrushes by now, cross the road at the top andtake the road that runs up and left past a loudspeaker announcement(ie don’t take the immediate left or right, or go straight on). Follow thisroad as it winds uphill and then straightens along the ridge. Anywherealong here can be good for laughingthrushes, babblers, buntings,accentors etc. After a km or two there are a couple of open areas withviews to the north and south. These areas can be good places fromwhere to watch raptor migration at peak times in spring and autumn.WAXWINGS (BOHEMIAN and JAPANESE): when present(usually early winter) the preferred area is between the southeast gateand the western gate (where there are some ornamental berrybushes).Botanical Gardens Site Guide, Page 7

Birding BeijingLast Updated 26 January 2018The stream that runs through the Cherry Valley can be good,particularly in winter as parts of it rarely freeze, providing a place todrink for birds.The northeast part of the gardens (near the arboretum) isgenerally quieter, so if you are there on a busy day and want to getaway from people, this is a good area to cover.Botanical Gardens Site Guide, Page 8
