5-25-14 Same Whales Different Waters

Sunday, May 25th
...right outside of Friday Harbor were the T49As...now that's a real change from yesterday...today it was calm seas, drizzling and whales closer to home!
...in fact they circled Jones Island...then on to another island to go half way around and then turn back...on to another...you get the idea!
...the T49As are sort of regulars in these waters...and have been for several years now...
...the first sighting of the new baby in this family - T49A4 - was March 13th while out on Maya's Westside Charters...we were looking for Dall's porpoise and found whales instead!...link to that post...
...today the whales were just meandering about...T49A4 next to mom T49A and T49A1 and T49A3 are behind them...
...T49A4 and mom T49A...
...and back again...sprouter T49A1 on the right...
...this was the first really gray day we've had in quite a while...


...there is another family member, T49A2, but he travels with his aunt - really!
...the two sisters and their offspring used to travel together all the time, but maybe with their growing families they have gone their separate ways...we see them all together once in a while...
...the T49As have been seen for two days now...I wonder if we'll see them again tomorrow...
