FeatherFest Photo Contest: Second Week Winners Announcement

Updated 24 days ago

The upper Texas coast transforms into a massive avian frat house this time of year, with countless birds winging northward across the Gulf of Mexico from their Central and South American winter bungalows. That probably helps to explain why birders, nature photographers and naturalists outnumber sun worshipers on Galveston during the spring. Prior to the annual Galveston FeatherFest, birders and photographers alike are encouraged to submit their photos for prizes.

The contest runs for four weeks.  Here are the week two winners!
