"David really enjoys finding and showing you the key species for the trip.  David's love of birds
and all nature makes the trip enjoyable and fun."
Norm Lewis has guided numerous birding tours across North America, including multiple
trips to Southeast Arizona, Alaska, Florida, the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, the Upper Texas
Coast, California, Nebraska and the Platte River Valley, North Carolina, New Mexico and
elsewhere. Indiana is his home state, where his brother taught him about bird watching.

For over twenty years he has led monthly trips across Colorado for the Denver Museum of
Nature and Science.  Recently, he has hosted a trip to Costa Rica, Ecuador and several
other of our South American destinations.

Norm is always good for a quick and tricky identification. He is always helpful with a quick
lesson on the finer points of bird identification in the field.

Norm is the Past-President of the Colorado Field Ornithologists and a Research Associate in
the Department of Zoology with the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.
Norm Lewis is always ready to get in the field and find some good
birds.  He will also assure you have a good time.
"Norm's sense of humour and keen field skills add much fun to any trip."

David has loved natural history his entire life, and he has seriously studied birds and butterflies for over
twenty years.   For nearly two decades, he has lead trips for local bird clubs and Audubon groups, first
starting with the Tennessee Ornithological Society (TOS). That soon led to organizing trips farther afield,
and he now guides 8 to 12 trips per year for the Partnership for International Birding.  

David has led trips all around the US and to other countries, including Panama, Ecuador, Mexico and

In addition to birding, David spends a lot of time documenting species for county lists and photographing
butterflies and dragonflies.  David is also involved in annual BioBlitzes and bird counts, and his advice on
the distribution of certain species is sought out in both Tennessee and Pennsylvania.  He has been in
active leadership roles in the Tennessee Ornithological Society and other birding and conservation efforts.

He has worked at the University of Tennessee in the Entomology and Plant Pathology Department.  He
has an M.S. degree from UT and a B.S. in biology research from the Univ. of Scranton in Pennsylvania.

He has recently moved back to his home state of Pennsylvania, and he now works full-time for the
Partnership for International Birding.  As a Partner in the Partnership for International Birding, he is more
than happy to guide anywhere in the United States and/or host a birding trip in most any country.
