Kind of blue

Today Newsday reported that a blue whale made a rare appearance only 70 miles off the coast of Long Island. Normally they are spotted hundreds of miles off shore in deeper water.

The Newsday article also has a MP3 recording of the blue whale’s song, which is quite different from the famous humpback whale songs. Wonder what this whale was singing about?

If you want to learn a bit more about these amazing animals (the largest animals that have ever lived in Earth), check out this blog post “Blue Whale Fun Facts,” which includes a life-sized eye of a blue whale.

  1. Maybe this whale was on his/her way to become an independent artist. You know, bored of the same old sounds and whales. 😉
