Happy New Year! Winter Wildlife Report for Monterey Bay

12/27/19 Most of the adult humpbacks have begun their migration south, but there is a growing number of juvenile humpbacks that appear to be wintering here! Today we observed at least 5 humpbacks, scattered throughout the Bay, most of them not full size, but actively feeding. We were lucky to see several surface lunges today.
Still waiting for the first gray whale sightings... But the humpbacks keep stealing the show!
