Superb sounds!!

Pretty sure the I15s have passed Robson Bight by now but if you can, go to: http://explore.org/live-cams/player/orcalab-robson-bight and scroll back to see the whales passing the Bight. Boat noise is better now, just the sound of the birds in the Bight. Thanks David and Brittney for following the I15s through from Blackney Pass and into Johnstone Strait.

We just had a large group of Orcas pass the lab heading south! They're currently on the explore CP camera easting in Johnstone Strait. We;ve counted 6 females, 2 calves and 2 males all spread out in twos and fours. http://explore.org/live-cams/player/orcalab-cracroft-point-surface.

Just had a nice surprise Two humpbacks were in Robson Bight close to shore. We saw them on the Critical Point camera until they took a long dive and we lost them and lost power to the camera. Lovely to think that there are still humpbacks around at this time of year. Chilly, clear and cold in this area!

We've heard a few scattered calls on CP with some echoes to PI over the past few minutes. They sound distant, but my guess is that it's Biggs.

Today, Alex Morton heard calls in Queen Charlotte Strait. She managed to get a recording and the calls sound like northern residents, someone from the C type groups. Exciting.

Outside of a few brief notes from the humpbacks, all is still quiet around here. Still anxiously awaiting our first orca sighting of the fall.

It's been quiet on the orca front sine we arrived. There's still a few humpbacks about but even they haven't been all that chatty. Perhaps today's the day that changes.
