WHALES: Orcas in the area

Thanks to Kersti Muul for the report that orcas have been making their way down central Puget Sound southbound. Just as the rain finally lightens, she says they’re off The Arroyos now, toward the west side of the Sound – members of J-Pod. They’ll eventually have to head back north, though!

    Kersti, these are the third top-to-bottom tours for the orcas covering tens of miles each day. Are the whales searching for food? Something else? Would love to hear your insights as to what’s up with what seems to be a lot of travel. Thanks.

Sorry, comment time is over.
