As we were watching the beach and the harbor seals today at Hopkins, spouts appeared right off the cove, heading into the bay. There were at least three but I am not sure if any of the were calves or not. But it sure was exciting and there were some school children that got an extra special viewing.
This guy is one of several that have wounds right now. He has this chunk out and another cut near the flippers although there may be more that I can not see. These just seem to be in the blubber and it is amazing how well they will heal over time. The salt water helps. Then it will have some neat scars and might be easier to identify or help give it a good name based on its scar pattern.
This is one of the many females on the beach right now. They were close in because the tide was high.
Looking at this guys neck, I am pretty sure he is a male.
