    Fairhaven resident and professional photographer Dan Logan will show some of his images from the last year of birds that live in or pass through southeastern Massachusetts. NOTE: This is a different show than the one Dan presented in Dartmouth! Dan's images range from common summer birds such as the Piping Plover and Barn Swallow to less frequently seen species including the Long-Eared Owl, Yellow-breasted Chat, Wood Duck, Northern Gannet and Black-throated Gray Warbler. He will share the stories behind the photographs and talk about the challenges of photographing fast-moving birds.
