Roy is a male Grizzly Bear that we have commonly been seeing on our river trips. It is very rewarding to recognize certain bears and watch their behaviour over a season, or several seasons for that matter. Roy got his fair share of salmon and was looking fat and healthy by the end of the season. All set for a good six months of hibernation.
As mentioned yesterday the behaviour of the orca varies day to day and is highly advanced. This whale is “spy hopping”. What the whale is basically doing is having a look at what is happening above the water line. Orca have advanced echolocation “sonar” abilities, which allows them to detect objects and animals underwater with pinpoint accuracy. They also like to check out what is happing above them as this orca is demonstrating.
Orca are highly intelligent and incredibly sociable animals. There behaviour varies day to day. They are often travelling, foraging and resting, but they do take time for play and socializing as well. This whale is basically standing on his head and doing a little bit of “tail lobbing”.
This is a very close up view of a Humpback Whale fluke (tail). This particular whale is known as “Domino”. You can identify the whale by the unique shape and colorations on the backside of the fluke. Domino has been coming back to our area for several years and we look forward to seeing his return next spring.
This particular Grizzly Bear was seen on our river trip and utilized the same spot for several weeks. He was almost always there, although at times partially obscured by the large rocks at the bottom of the waterfall. This spot was, however productive as the Grizzly would wait for salmon to leap the small falls and intercept them before they make it to the top and to the safety of the deeper water. Patience is a virtue
