New Baby Orca in J Pod

The Orca Network says a newborn killer whale has been spotted in J Pod, which was seen Wednesday in waters off the San Juan Islands and near Victoria.

The Network’s Susan Berta says the calf has been given the designation J-46. Its presumed mother is a 16-year-old orca known as J-28 or Polaris.

Another baby killer whale was reported last month in L pod.
