WHALES: Two groups of orcas, two directions

11:13 AM: Two groups of orcas are heading in our direction, from opposite directions, according to Kersti Muul of Salish Wildlife Watch: Transient orcas are northbound, passing Three Tree Point a little while ago, while Southern Resident Killer Whales from J-Pod are reported to be southbound, off mid-Bainbridge Island at last report. Let us know if you see any of them.

12:15 PM: See comments for updates – thanks to everyone providing them!

    Do they ignore each other if they should be in the same area at the same time?

    Residents are viewable.  They are off the southern bainbridge point.  Look for the research vessel.
