Possible Sei Whale Vocalizations

One wonders what could be better than seeing a group of whales for hours and hours, blows in the distance, blows nearby, heads and fins popping out of the water near the boat, near the dinghy, near where you are standing and watching from shore…. well what about SOUNDS of those same whales!

Here is a short clip of what are possible sei whale sounds, recorded on the ST200 hydrophone, which was installed into the sound  overnight nearby our anchorage.

The photo of the spectrogram gives a view of those same sounds.

Enjoy!
