3-2-14 Hoping For Whales and Falling Snow

Out on Maya's Westside Charters the last couple of days...one with snow...

 ...and one with rain...the eagles looked pretty wet...
...and a bit comical too!
...on Saturday we saw a cruise ship coming up Haro Strait...
..that's strange at this time of year...I looked it up when I got home... says it is an Estonian shipping company operating in Finland, Sweden, Latvia...okay, now I'm as confused as that bald eagle looks!...

...a few days ago J pod and Onyx L-87 went north...and they haven't been heard from since...each day we think 'maybe', but so far not...
...they could have come back down silently...they might still be up north...or they might have taken a non-hydrophone route back down...
...but I keep listening and this morning I picked up transient calls at 10:37 a.m. (3-2-14)...just a few...then an hour and a half later they were vocalizing again...they didn't 'say' much and hadn't gone very far...

...their calls were faint enough to indicate a good distance and it could have been either to the north or to the south...so that didn't help matters for searching!

...maybe tomorrow? ... and we can do without any snow now!
