Stop by the center and meet photographer, John de Graaff, who's exhibit is entitled
"Birds of the Massachusetts Coast: Piping Plovers and More"
The majority of his images are from Mass Audubon’s Allens Pond Wildlife Sanctuary
in Westport (south of New Bedford), which he's visited regularly for the past few years. The shots focus especially on the birds’ characteristic activities--especially the breeding and feeding behaviors of piping plovers and least terns. Some fifteen pairs of piping plovers nest at Allens Pond each season, and up to 200 pairs of least terns. Stop by and see these amazing images.
