Spring is in the air! That means hundreds of migrating birds are heading north across the Gulf from Central and South America and Galveston is one of their first stops.
If you're a bird-watcher or nature photographer, you may already know that the Galveston FeatherFest Birding and Nature Photo Festival is coming up April 6-9. Leading up to the festival, photographers are invited to submit images of wild birds taken in Galveston and surrounding counties. Contest details are here.
The winners each week will be announced on Wednesdays and posted here.
For a little inspiration, the nice folks at Galveston Nature Tourism Council allowed us to assemble this slide show of winners from the 2016 contest.
Be sure to mark your calendar for April 6-9 for the Galveston Birding and Nature Photo Festival and head down to the island. You are sure to learn something and see some really cool birds!
If you want to participate in any of the trips or workshops, be sure to register early. Many of the events sell out well in advance.
