3-12-17 Looking for Spring

Sunday, March 12th 

...a couple days ago, my attention was drawn to many gulls that were skimming the surface of the water...they were going after bait fish - that's a sign of Spring...
...so the next morning I thought I would go look for more signs of spring - like more birds skimming the surface or a bait ball or two...didn't find either of those but I did find 'someone' else who might have been looking for some signs too



...then the rain started and looking for signs of Spring could wait for another day...


...there were other ways to 'look for' signs of spring - the hydrophones!..and two of them occurred the next day (today)...
 ...so maybe Spring isn't too far away!

...and then the whales came back in this afternoon...right now it is 8:25 pm and there are/were very faint and intermittent echolocation clicks over the Orca Sound hydrophones...
...there were intermittent calls over Lime Kiln and some echolocation clicks about a half hour before but for now they have gone out of range over the Lime Kiln hydrophones...however the whales could show back up on them too...
...no telling where J Pod will be tomorrow morning...

...with all this going on...yeah, Spring isn't far away...

Thank you Jeanne this site and you are awesome. What a feeling when listening to these mighty creatures...purely breathtaking, and the eagle, what can I say.....I'm so thankful they're still around.
