Fierce Fundy Fog!

Hello everyone, well, that Bay of Fundy fog came back something fierce today but it didn't stop us.  We spent time on both departures today with finbacks and minke whales.  On our 10am departure we got a very brief look at a humpback tail but the fog settled back in as the tide began to flood and we couldn't relocate him with the strong SW winds.

Hawk we saw on Pendletons Island (Nick IDed as a red-tailed)

a red-headed female grey.....I am in LOVE 

Thanks for checking in today :)



  1. Are the red-headed greys very common? That is so neat! I think I see where Slice got his/her name. Thanks for the pictures.

  2. Hey Bonnie, Slice is missing his/her dorsal fin, it has been "sliced" off. We have now idea how this happened but we can tell you he is doing just fine. As for the grey seal, I have never seen a red-headed grey seal before, harbour seal...yes....but never a grey seal. I have no idea on how common they are, I will have to do some research on that one. THANKS for all your comments Bonnie
