Yet Another New Calf for the Transients

Meet yet another new transient killer whale calf! On our afternoon trip from Edmonds, July 1, we spotted a new calf swimming with T37, the T37B pod, and the T34 pod. We don’t know who the mother is yet because we saw the little one swimming around with several family members during our encounter with them. This calf was first seen down in California a few weeks ago, on June 17, and the mother was not able to be determined at that time either. Hopefully we will have other sightings of this pod soon that will shed light on who the mom is! This is exciting news, nonetheless. Here are some photos of the new calf along with some other pictures of our exciting encounter with the family after they made a kill and ate a meal, and celebrated!
