Another Multispecies Day! Humpback & Fin Whales
We started the trip with reports of a humpback near the lighthouse. We found it, a young humpback that had been seen and photographed by Dr. Artie Kopelman in NY Harbor in early July. Later we headed to where we’d seen fin whales previously this year. This time we found them a little closer in. Again mom and calf (2 Pairs) and three other fin whales. On our way back we found the humpback once more near the lighthouse. As we left it breached behind us.
-1 HUMPBACK WHALE
-7 Fin BACK whales
-70 Cory’s Shearwaters
-10 Wilson’s Storm Petrels
-5 GREAT SHEARWATERS
