After a few months with my mind on the Southern Ocean I’m starting to point my intentions back toward the Northern Hemisphere (and Alaska in particular). With that in mind, this recording was taken in the Alaskan Beaufort Sea almost two years ago exactly.
Humpback whales produce a wide variety of non-song vocalizations, or “Social Sounds”. This particular vocalization was recorded in Frederick Sound, Southeast Alaska, in summer of 2012.
