You could use a "calendar" agenda to look for upcoming birthdays
generated by org-bbdb-anniversaries:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(add-to-list 'org-agenda-custom-commands
             '("c" "Calendar" agenda ""
                ((org-agenda-span 'month) 
                 (org-agenda-time-grid nil) ;;
                 (org-agenda-entry-types '(:timestamp :sexp)))))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

If (for speed's sake) you wanted to limit the calendar just to
birthdays, you could create an org file with a single headline:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
* Birthdays
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

...and then add an org-agenda-files line that points just to that
minimal file to the custom command above.
