Three Humpback whales were spotted off the Mendonoma Coast.

John Batchelder was watching Sea Lions rafting and feeding recently when three Humpback Whales showed up. One breached as John was ready with his camera.

And here's where the whale hit the water. Notice the birds nearby - these are extremely rare Black-vented Shearwaters.

Here's a photo where John shows the three Humpbacks.

Thanks to John for allowing me to share his photos with you here.

      That's the beauty of Sightings. Maybe John was the only person to see this, but we get to share in the thrill because of his photos and story. Sweet!
