Gray whales will soon slowly start making their migration north (if they haven't already) from Baja, Mexico to Alaska, but not before a small group of them make a stopover in the waters of Puget Sound to feed on the abundance of ghost shrimp! Once these whales have eaten their fill, they will begin to continue their migration north. Of the estimated 22,000 gray whales that inhabit the North pacific ocean, we get to have our very own "resident" gray whale population of about 12 a...
