Computers beat human listeners at dawn

2011/06/22 in Acoustic analysis, Lime Kiln State Park, Network news, Orcasound lab, southern resident

Lots of whistles and calls (S1, S16) were detected by the WhoListener program this morning, first at Lime Kiln from 6:08-6:19, then at Orcasound (5 km north) from 7:47-7:52. Seems like some of the southern residents (J and K pod) are working the west side of San Juan Island, as members of both pods were observed and/or heard heading north towards and/or up through Haro Strait last night.

Did they double back and then go north again this morning or were they really (~9 hours?) spread out?

Here are all the auto-detections:
