Right Whales - "Like the Swallows of Capistrano"
It's spring. Like the swallows of Capistrano, the right whales arrive in Cape Cod Bay to feed on the abundance of zooplankton that the Bay provides. This year, so far, about 70 different whales have been sighted. A good year. It is believed that a record number of calves, 40, were born this winter off the coasts of Florida and Georgia. Read the full article, on Boston.com. The whales can best be seen from the shore between Race Point and Herring Cove beaches. Check out this video from last spring.
