About Your Trip Leader

Meet Diane Roberts

I have been immersed in learning places, birds & habitats for the last 4.5 years. I have lead Denver Field Ornithologists trips from the Pawnee National Grasslands to Pueblo State Park to New Mexico. Local & a few hours away make for an interesting mix of birds and habitats.

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.

Meet Jason Bidgood

My interest in birding grew out of a life-long interest in nature and natural history. I’ve been actively birding since 2015 and joined DFO a year later in 2016. Most of my birding experience has been patch birding in the Denver metro area. I enjoy birding year-round and getting to know the common birds.

I plan to start out leading trips to the places I know best. An ideal field trip to me involves walking several miles over a few hours, taking time to observe interesting bird behavior. I prefer to lead smaller groups. I typically can't be out birding all day, so my trips will be on the shorter end of the spectrum. In addition to knowing the birds I also enjoy learning about geology, native plants and insects.
