In the morning we also saw a large basking shark offshore
|Can you see the basking shark under the water? This was right beside the boat|
Nesting season is in full swing for many seabirds and we are starting to see some chicks!
|Gull chicks, most likely herring gulls, on Whitehorse|
|Gull chicks and some herring gull adults|
|Common murres, this is most likely a family, with a female, a male and their chick. The male will stay with the chick and care for it until it can fly, which is around 2 weeks after they leave the nest|
|Razorbill on Whitehorse Island, I wonder if they have a nest....|
This afternoon we came across a juvenile bald eagle (still has some molting colouration on the underside of his/her wings) who was waiting on Whitehorse Island for a good opportunity for some food. The gulls quickly chased the eagle away.
And of course, we stopped with seals.

Thanks again for checking in today,
