Spy Hop Day

August 31, 2009

We found tight groups of some J’s and L’s, the trailers of reported superpod, at Mouat Point, North Pender Island, from 3:20pm to 4:02pm, heading northwest with the flooding tide. The most spy hops we have seen this season! Also a lot of percussive and tactile behaviors. J-27 Blackberry was hanging with L-Pod girls L-72 Racer (and sons L-95 Nigel & L-105 Fluke), L-55 Nugget, L-86 Surprise (with L-112 looking good), and L-83 Moonlight, so some mating? J-28 Polaris in the mix too. Several times, a female or juvenile swam on its back, upside down!
