January 16, 2010

Good morning from Discovery Harbour Marina

Yesterday was a mild and sunny day here on Vancouver Island and the Orca took this opportunity to arrived in Johnstone Strait at about 11:30 in the morning. Two Northern Resident groups spent the day foraging in and around the Robson Bight area. Picture attached shows A42 and A79 which are part of a group of about a dozen Orca called the A5's. Along with them was a larger group called the A31's which has a high percentage of females. (small fins)

We haven't seen the Northerns in Johnstone Strait since before Christmas so their arrival tells us that there is a supply of Winter Spring Salmon available in those waters.

These two groups of Orca each have their own very distinctive calls. If you are interested you can hear them thanks to Helena and Paul at

Happy New Year
