Ahh yes, as I sit here in Myoko fighting jetlag while watching giant snowflakes fall from the sky my thoughts drift back to… grad school and seabird surveys in the San Juans? Well, kind of, because I just got this paper from Arda Tonay and colleagues from Turkey. They compiled all the anomalously white harbor porpoise sightings across the planet, one of which (from August 2007) just happens to be the first record from the Pacific Ocean. It’s pretty cool to see my thesis and Keener et al. 2011 cited in this paper recently published in Hystrix, the Italian Journal of Mammalogy.
