Getting Around!

I just identified this whale from our survey flight last Friday afternoon. The whale is EGNO 2614, an adult female that gave birth to her second calf last winter. She was just seen in December off the coast of Florida by the New England Aquarium aerial survey team! I guess it should come as no surprise that she made her way up to Cape Cod Bay a few months later.
