One would never have guessed this recording is taken by the Cornell Bio acoustics Lab. Amazing.

||What a different whale song it sings, Maire. Maybe there will be these beautiful hugh mamals visiting us more often here, though I'd hate to hear that is going up the East River or Hudson.
Thanks for the song, Amazing;-)

||That's a great bit of video Marie. I believe a Blue Whale was seen off the Irish coast fairly recently, can't remember when, and that is the Atlantic too. I also read somewhere that they had been seen off the coast of Washington, so one of these days you may be out with POW and get to see one. It looks a bit like a Humpback on the video but I realise they absolutely huge. Nature is amazing.

||I just hope the *stupid human* element doesn't get wind of this and do something stupid..... we all know what can happen when that happens. (see fishing line thread, for one example)
It is an amazing link, Marie, thanks so much

||Thank you Marie. Only today "in passing", I became aware of the blue whale off the shores of Long Island. It was great to read and hear! Thanks for the info:-)

||Tried to cut and paste but it didn't work for me. Anybody that can put it as a link please?

||It is a shame we can't hear the song with our ears due to the very low frequency the Blue Whale uses, but I do know that other Blue Whales hear this song thousands of miles away. Sound travels better through water than through air.
Lynn try again and include all letters and slashes etc, especially the last slash... works fine for me again.

||Thanks for finding that for us, Marie. It's exciting news.

||Wasn't that amazing? I did read about it in the paper and immediately thought of you Marie. To be honest I thought that the blue whales were only in the Pacific not the Atlantic ocean. How wonderful and scary all at the same time. Could their population be rebounding or is global warming forcing the whales to travel in different waters? Time will tell.......

||AnneUK, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I know I sound silly, but after only reading the news reports, to see the a Blue Whale, while listening to the person talking about it was great. Even more so the idea that we may have more access to information like this in the future, in our area was phenomenal.
Tried the site thru cut and paste a number of times and had no luck, so I guess I must be doing something wrong. I copied the whole address and pasted same and got a message that it couldn't be found, so the Link was a great help.
