Our 13th Mother and calf pair!

Hello Everyone!

Whale watching continues to be excellent on the Bay of Fundy at Brier Island Whale and Seabird Cruises! We are fortunate to be able to observe these whales in their own habitat and see for ourselves the arrival of each new calf as it arrives to learn to feed on the herring and krill that is abundant here. These feeding areas are passed on from generation to generation. The latest calf to arrive was with its mother Knuckles. It seemed that yesterday was a nursery school day as we watched 5 mother and calf pairs, one of which was Flash and her calf, who is very active as the photographs show. can't wait to see who will arrive next!
