Another great video has surfaced, this one by Alisa Lemire Brooks of the Orca Network, shot on the morning of Nov. 3, showing members of J & K pods, along with L87 in resting mode traveling in three very large, tight groups off Burien’s Three Tree Point: [youtube][/youtube] Alisa adds:

Love those family bonds! Mid video is newest calf J53 w/J17 (thank you Sara Hysong-Shimazu). Early reports had them along the shores of Vashon/Maury Island. I caught up to them at Three Tree Point in Burien as they travel northbound mid channel in resting mode.
