Had the chance to jump on the F/v "Ari Two" with our good friend Armin this week to try for bluefin tuna. Couldn't pass it up since most of our time on the water is taken up with our white shark research efforts close to shore on the outer Cape. We set out in blustery...

We took a break from our field work tracking and photographing white sharks here on Cape Cod to head to a favorite birding spot on Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge and take a look at birds that are passing through the refuge on their southerly migration. We also includ...
