Orcas-Minkes-Marine Birds

P1050071July 3, 2009
Sunny, warm, pond-like conditions, at the end of the flooding tide, in the Strait of Juan de Fuca, off Salmon Bank, from about 2:40pm to 3:40pm. We watched 2 or 3 orcas foraging and going on very long dives With the bright sun glinting off their backs and unpredictable surfacings, couldn’t get a positive ID- did anyone else? Same 2 Minkes foraging with hundreds of marine birds, the auklets were sitting on the glass surface with bait fish draped in their bills!
