8-5-16 Perfect Timing To Hear the Whales

Friday, August 5th
...after the whales came in on the 3rd they stayed north for a day and a half ...late in the day they were in Haro Strait, traveling against an incoming (up) current as they were coming down...

...it often slows them down...but this much...



...




...this veering offshore as they come down is something they have done now several times in July...I remember in years past the whales have moved offshore in July (and maybe august?)...seems that is where the salmon is...and that is most likely why they are doing that this year...
...thank you Jason for the the hydrophone fix!...back up and streaming...(they will be working on them again soon as this is a temporary fix)...but the timing was perfect...especially with the challenging lighting...and of course just about all the calls heard were L Pod calls...not surprising...
..audio helped to confirm who was present - way cool!!
