Exploring Nature with Jerry Hall: Birding festival in Galveston

One of my favorite birding festivals will be held April 14-17 in Galveston.  
It’s called FeatherFest, and this will be the 14th annual edition.
Spring migration will be underway, and more than 200 bird species are possible on trips to the beach, bay, Bolivar Flats, High Island and other area hotspots.  Expect to see egrets and plovers, sandpipers and godwits, plus a wide assortment of warblers at Boy Scout Woods and ubiquitous laughing gulls everywhere.
