If you want to go on a pelagic trip in the northeastern United States odds are you will end up on a See Life Paulagics trip (we at 10,000 Birds certainly have: in fact, it’s where Mike and I met!). The founder of See Life Paulagics, Paul Guris, who always makes sure you are on the birds and know the relevant field marks, has experienced some major health issues lately and will be getting a new kidney on June 26. We wish him the best of luck and a speedy recovery. He has started a non-profit to help those in a situation similar to his: Kidney Funds.com. Get well soon, Paul!
