4-6-18 J Pod Heard But Not Seen

Friday, April 6th
It began with vocals over Lime Kiln hydrophones...

...last night I wondered if J Pod would come in ahead of this storm that is being predicted...I've noticed they have come in like that sometimes in the past, but don't have any idea if there is a relationship between those two...and here they were this morning...

...but J Pod was only heard and not seen today.

...there were Transients in several places - off the east side of San Juan Island, at the east end of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and to the north near the Strait of Georgia...
...and there were 'mystery' whales off the lower west side of the island this morning...

...can't wait for J Pod to show up next...
...hope someone shows themselves tomorrow to reveal just who those 'mystery' whales were...
...and hope it all happens between the rain and wind storms that are on their way!

updated: turns out that the 'mystery whales' will likely remain a mystery...J Pod was seen the next day in Puget Sound...AND...so were Transients. 
...AND one of the Ts had a new calf...and one of the people who had seen whales early on the west side in the morning commented that there was a mom and a baby...so just maybe it was those Ts...but we won't ever know the answer to this one for sure.
