{Flight} 11 January 2012 Rhode Island Sound

We have been flying much more than I've had the time to blog about, but in the spirit of the New Year, I am going to try to share more updates in 2012! :-)

On Wednesday we flew in our Rhode Island Sound survey box, and we did not find any right whales in the area, but we did see 2 harbor porpoise, 1 humpback whale, and 1
fin whale.

After the right whale survey, we also flew around Muskeget Island to document gray seals - such a gorgeous view to fly around the island and see the antics of all the seals hauled out on land and swimming around in the waters nearby. There were too many to count without further analysis.
