Alright, back to the Transient encounter. Aboard the Odyssey of San Juan Excursions, we met up with the T034's and T037's at Sandy Point, Waldron Island. The T037 matriline is made up of T037, the matriarch, her two daughters, T037A and T037B, and her four grandchildren; T037A1, T037A2, T037A3 and T037B1. The T034's is made up of the matriarch,T034, and her probable daughter, T034A. T034 could possibly be T037's mother. Anyway, they had just killed a harbor seal and celebrated for the entire time we were with them. To top it off, we were even able to listen to them vocalize with our hydrophone. I had never heard Transients vocalize live while out on the water with them! I recorded their calls and you can listen to them here. For most of the encounter, juveniles T037A2 and T037B1 were goofing off together, and at once point, both showed their genital areas. We now know their genders!
