📷Birds in Flight From a Boat #1

April 19 @ 6:00 am - 10:00 am
  • This event has passed.
This popular photography field trip by boat is so popular we offer it multiple times during FeatherFest!

Join Scott Buckel on this unique experience on Galveston Bay to photograph birds in flight from a boat. One of the best ways to learn to photograph birds in flight is to practice and this trip will provide ample opportunities to do just that! The number of birds, Brown Pelicans in particular, is amazing, providing many photo opportunities as the birds come and go from the islands. In Galveston Bay, there are man-made islands where large numbers of breeding birds nest.

This special trip, arranged by FeatherFest, allows us to approach these islands while following a special protocol to minimize impact on the colonial birds. Please plan to use the indoor restroom at the landing area prior to boarding. There are no restrooms on the boat, and we do not land on any islands.

Suggested Equipment:  Digital SLR camera with a 300mm lens or greater, tripod, camera bag/back pack to keep gear organized in the boat

Driving directions to the meeting site will be emailed prior to the festival.

Bring: water, snacks, sunscreen, bug spray
