Humpback Whales

A fantastic day with so much going on ~Humpback Whales, Orcas, Dolphins, Porpoise and swimming Bald Eagles........!

Today was an incredibly interesting day with so much to see beginning with sightings of bald eagles, pigeon guillemots, black oystercatchers, black turnstones, gull species ++(glaucous-winged, mew and herring) and hauled out harbour seals and then 100’s of gulls massed together (with common murres and rhinoceros auklets), sitting on the water, while 100’s more were flying in circles, as were bald eagles, all of them gathered where herring had also gathered in the flooding current passing through Weynton Passage into Johnstone Strait. 672 more words

A fabulous day viewing A-Clan Orcas: A24's, Humpback Whales and bow-riding Dall's Porpoise!

We enjoyed seeing some lovely cetaceans and other fauna today. It was a peaceful morning with harbour seals bobbing about in kelp forests, bald eagles (juvenile and adult) were soaring high in the sky while black turnstones and black oystercatchers could be heard calling across the water. 336 more words
