About Your Trip Leader

Meet David Suddjian

David Suddjian

I've been birding for over 35 years, beginning in California, and in Colorado since 2013. I coordinated DFO's Big Year 2018, leading 81 field trips for DFO that year. I love eBirding, and counting birds.

I lead all kinds of trips from low key local outings near my Ken Caryl JeffCo home to intense far ranging trips reaching out to all corners of the state. Overnight trips go to classic Colorado birding locations, and sometimes we even camp! I like to explore areas, county birding, back roads, cemeteries and sewage lagoons, developing birding by ear skills, and helping birders to appreciate the patterns of migration, seasonal occurrence and habitat associations. I love the camaraderie of DFO field trips, the new friendships that grow, and the opportunities for birders to have FUN in the field!

I have been immersed in learning places, birds & habitats for the last 4 years. I have lead Denver Field Ornithologists trips from the Pawnee National Grasslands to Pueblo State Park. Local & a few hours away make for an interesting mix of birds and places.

Sharing the joy of birdwatching and Colorado’s beauty are the reasons I enjoy going near and far. Building on bird identification & bird songs enhance the experience.
