Puget Sound Orcas Spotted With New Baby
"I'm delighted that they'll go where food is available."

Monterey Bay, California, USA - Puget Sound's endangered killer whales have been spotted with a new calf, bringing the number of orcas to 86 as the whales feed on salmon along the California coast, scientists said.
The center said killer whales from Washington have increasingly been seen off the coast of California in recent winters, likely searching for salmon to eat.
