About Your Trip Leader

Meet Joey Kellner

Joey Kellner

I've been birding Colorado since the early 1980's and and leading DFO field trips since 1989. In the 1990's I've branched out to other states to include Arizona, Florida, Michigan/Ohio, California and Alaska. Colorado being my favorite, but Arizona is a VERY close second!

I enjoy leading trips further afield to locations that most people do not go. For example, isolated migrant "traps" in northeastern Colorado and the lakes of South Park. Discovering a common bird in an unusual location is just as much a thrill as seeing a rare bird. In the last two decades I've also gotten into "herping" searching for native reptiles and amphibians.
