If you always wanted to take the Galveston FeatherFest Pre-festival boat trip at Rockport, Texas, you are in luck. Three registrants just dropped out for health reasons, so there is still time for you to get on board. Contact the Festival headquarters in Galveston and get registered; just like registering for any other field trip at the festival.
When you register, they will give you the basic information on where to go, where to stay and our daily schedule. We will try to meet for dinner the night before our first trip and discuss everything.
We will photograph on two mornings from a very stable platform aboard Captain Kevin Sims’s boat. Photographing will be a short distance from an active wading bird nesting island…not too close to bother the birds but close enough for you to get fantastic flight and perch shots of a good variety of birds like Roseate Spoonbill, Great Egret, Snow Egret, Reddish Egret, Great Blue Heron, Tri-colored Heron and other species in breeding plumage.
