Galveston FeatherFest 2021
Had a great time again this year leading field trips for Galveston’s FeatherFest. Very glad that we could have the field trips this year as last year had to be cancelled due to Covid-19. We reduced the size of the groups this year for social distancing but it turned out great. Actually like the smaller groups better from an interaction perspective at Bolivar.
The weather did not cooperate with day 1 trip to Bolivar Flats being cancelled with high surf. Had everyone cancel ahead of time except one participant that was driving from Winnie. She called me as I was waiting at the Galveston side of the ferry and the highway along the Bolivar peninsula was getting flooded and had debris on the road. Safety first so I cancelled that trip. Had another day with very high winds that turned out very well. I’ll post some of my bird photos later.
Here are some cell phone group shots from 2021 FeatherFest at Bolivar Flats and the east end of Galveston Island.
Now that’s what I call devoted, committed, interesting, professional, (and a tad uncomfortable!!) I’m so thankful there are folks like all of you who capture the beauty in this world for us to see! Thank you so much. (I couldn’t do it!!) Loved those photos and am looking forward to all that are yet to come!

Thank you very much Diane! FeatherFest is always a great time where I can share my passion out on the mud flats in Texas. I’ve been shooting from a ground pod like this since 2009 and just love the perspective that you get being eye level with the birds. They don’t recognize you as a person and will walk right up to you. Well worth the pain in the neck/back and required clean-up in the end.
