Computers beat human listeners at dawn

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:
