Mother Gray Whales with their calves have been passing by our shores.

Before the wind picked up yesterday there were quite a few sightings of Gray Whales, mostly mothers with their calves. Richard Kuehn photographed a calf apparently lunge feeding.

And the young Gray Whale also breached several times.

This is a fun time to be on the Mendonoma Coast! Thanks to Rich for allowing me to share his photos with you here.

    I am told it is too early for this calf to be lunge feeding - it is still nursing. So it is unclear what this calf was doing.
