9-25-16 Part of The Day In the Life of An Orca

9-25-16
...of course the title of this blog post refers to 'in the life of a Southern Resident Orca'...
...the K14 family of four had passed by the lighthouse between 9 and 10 a.m. going up island and not far behind were the K12s, a family of five...
...however, they stopped and spent about three hours foraging off from Lime Kiln lighthouse...some folks want to see the whales 'perform' - breach, tail slap, and other fancy looking things...but to see who they are - well that's just plain special...














...here's a sampling of what was heard over the hydrophones during the time they were present...

...also present and hoping to get successful...

...a few hours later the K14 family plus Cappuccino K-21, Opus K-16, and Sonata K-35 came back down island...they too had spent just about the same amount of time foraging but they had been about 7 miles to the north...
...Think each group knew where the other group was and what they were doing?  I'd say "most definitely"!
