The whale watch was not quite as dramatic as the one we experienced three years ago when we saw the spectacular humpback breaches shown below. However, we did see a number of humpbacks showing off as well as several killer whales quietly traversing the waters. We were compensated with visual treats – pelicans, an osprey, frigates, cormorants, sea lions, dolphins, herons, egrets and a brown booby which is rarely seen in Cabo San Lucas.
One of the delights of this trip is our good fortune to see many herons - blue, grey, green and tricolored ones. The third photo includes a common gallinule with its signature brilliant red shield over the bill. Followed by the green heron and the tricolored heron.
