Definitely a beautiful day on the ocean! We traveled to southern Jeffreys Ledge in search of whales today based on a report from a fishing boat. We found 2 fin whales in the area! The whales were busy- likely trying to catch a ton or so of food.
The first whale we encountered was #0112, a fin whale first seen in 2001. This whale is a regular to the area but today was the first day we saw it this year!

As spotted a second whale in the area, we also saw a cool avian friend! We think this is a Razorbill- a little out of place for this time of year, but still very cool!
|Who is this avian-alcid friend?? Razorbill? I'm waiting for my Audubon friends to comment here....|
