Orcas and Tufted Puffins!

July 10, 2009
J’s, K’s and L’s really spread out from Salmon Bank heading toward Cattle Point to Eagle Cove all the way to Turn Point, foraging with the strong flooding tide. Today, from 2:14pm to 3:40pm, we got a nice looks at J-27 Blackberry, one of the new J babies, and K-20 Spock with energetic K-38 Comet who breached 3 consecutive times! The air was rich with that bait fish smell. We are seeing more marine birds than last summer, and I am thrilled to report my first sighting in 2 years of 3 Tufted Puffins, all dressed up in their beautiful breeding colors!!
