Bimini 2008 Swoosh first calf

 

Everyone, I’d like you to meet the first offspring of Swoosh (ID#36)!  The new mother-calf pair was spotted twice this week; hopefully those are the first of many sightings.  The young male cannot be added to our photo-ID catalog though, because he has no re-identifiable markings.   

Yesterday’s trip was a success and today I’ve been off the boat, catching up on office tasks, such as manuscript editing & field reports.  I hope you enjoy them!

 

 Yesterday, we were pleasantly surprised by a small group of bottlenose dolphins immediately outside of Bimini harbor.  This is a busy boat traffic area, but the dolphins seem competent at staying clear of the boats coming & going all around them.  This group was traveling quickly south, and we needed to go north, so we observed them for a view minutes before going on our way.  Later in the day, we observed a large group of socializing/mating dolphins including Buster (#04), Finn (#09), Romeo (#10), Tina (#14), Split Jaw (#22), Billy (#64), Nemo (#76), Leslie #80 and un-named #78 & 87.  A busy day!  

Until next time, 

Kel
