With more than 100 field trips, workshops and social events, FeatherFest 2014 is one of the largest birding festivals in Texas, and one of only a few with a dedicated nature photography track. Galveston is one of the top locations for birding in the nation, and FeatherFest is held during early spring migration — a great time to visit world-renowned birding hot spots like Bolivar Flats and High Island.

Expert-led excursions by bus and boat will visit a variety of habitats, from beaches to bays, bay marshes to wetlands, and coastal prairies to upland wood motts. Click here for a complete schedule.
