2006 09/28 Siphon - Humpback female

Siphon a well known female that whale researchers have seen since the early through mid-1980's. So she is more than 20 years old. The people in northern Maine have seen her with 5 calves in that time. She seems to use the local boats as baby sitters, leaving her calf with them as she goes off to feed.
