A cool layer of misty fog lay in the far distance when we headed out this morning, clearing rapidly before us as we went. The flood current was heavy with birds feeding++ as gulls gathered feeding at the surface of herring balls, Bald Eagles were fishing intensely as were Stellar Sea Lions and a Minke Whale. The feeding frenzy made for some fantastic viewing for all on board. The resident orcas who were in the area yesterday were reported east of Eve River in Johnston Strait late this morning. Other species also seen: Harbour Seals, Dall’s Porpoises, Rhinoceros Auklets, Common Murres, Pigeon Guillemots, Black Oyster Catchers, A Great Blue Heron, Bald Eagles including an Eaglet in the nest, California and Herring Gulls.
