This past summer was excellent for the number of eagles feeding on the schools of herring and for the number of days we viewed the activity on the wildlife safaris. The larger the schools of herring in our viewing area mean many more humpback whales, more salmon to attract killer whales and more eagles feeding. The base of marine activity is the abundance of herring.
Compare this photo to the one in the September 12th posting to see they are the same type of dolphins – Pacific Whitesided Dolphins. In the 12th posting they are playing beside the boat but today they are working / feeding. The dolphins often work in pods to corral the herring and then take turns feeding but on this day it was a solo act.
