Torn Between The Sigma 70-200 and Sigma 150-500 lens

I am debating on whether to get the sigma 70-200 lens or the 150-500 lens.  I understand the focal lengths and low light capabilities of each.  I want to attempt some birding but I think getting a lens SPECIFICALLY for birding in my situation being a college student, I would rather get a lens that works for both.  I know the sigma 70-200 does not reach as far as the 150-500 however, using a Canon 70D and the possibility of purchasing an extender of 1.4 making it 3 times the focal length would make the 70-200 a 210-600?  Maybe I have that part wrong.
