4-17-2022 Vey Chatty Transient Orcas!


Transients usually have a somewhat mournful sound to their calls. This time was different.  

Were there some youngsters in the group?

Had they just 'prepared a meal'?

Had they just finished a meal?

Were they a group or part of a group who aren't within hydrophone range very often?  Or some who had not been in these waters before?

I don't know, but it's fun to wonder!

4-10-2022 What A Day Watching J Pod

 San Juan Channel and whales...hmmm...Transients maybe?

You just never know until you see...

I realize this young one with Mike looks too big to be J-59.

Now at the Lime Kiln, in 'wait mode'...and in the meantime - WOW!
