Transient Orcas on the Westside, May 15th

After getting to see the various members of L Pod the day before, we thought that we would see them again today.  We got a report that there were orcas on the “westside” of  San Juan Island and we assumed that it was L Pod.  It turned out to be Transient orcas, the meat eaters.  When we got on scene with the whales we were just south of Henry Island.  The whales were in a travel mode, cruising right along in a predictable path.  They stopped at the bottom of Henry Island and it looked like they made a kill.  They stayed there until we had to start heading back to Friday Harbor.  Along the way we went by Spieden Island and saw harbor seals, bald eagles and a bald eagle’s nest.   It was a great trip.
