Dolphins visit us again

Posted by Chris in West River , Water Quality Monitoring , Rhode River , dolphins

I got a very cheerful call from water quality monitoring volunteer Linda Lawrence this morning - she had spotted a pod of dolphins in Tenthouse Creek (near Galesville) in the West River. Our volunteer monitoring team on the Rhode River reported seeing them later this morning, too. Last summer we also had these marine mammal visitors come up the river. Yesterday, my friend and colleague Drew Koslow (Choptank Riverkeeper) reported seeing dolphins in the Choptank River on the Eastern Shore. Could they be the same ones that came to our Rivers today? Could they be the same ones that went up the Rivers last year? Maybe this is their annual vacation... I don't blame them - the West and Rhode Rivers are a wonderful place to visit!

Recently, a member sent us a video he put together of scenes he captured on the Rhode River. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
