The team has been hearing a lot of whale songs in the field with the help of the hydrophone we have on board. We have even been fortunate enough to hear a few singers without the assistance of the hydrophone because of how close these males have been approaching the boat and because of how loud they are projecting these “love calls”. For the most part the sounds the whales make consist of creaks, groans and moans, however they can get pretty interesting and often have us giggling aboard. Here is a short segment of a 20 minute recording that we got from a singer just outside of the Islas Secas!
