We’re observing April in the Saguenay Fjord, at Anse à la Boule to be exact. She’s swimming in a herd of 60 belugas making their way upriver along the shoreline. Within the herd, we notice a few entirely white individuals, though 50% of them are gray or slightly gray. We also observe one newborn.
After arriving in Baie Sainte-Marguerite, the animals break up into smaller groups and adopt behaviours typical of those observed in this bay, raising their tails and poking their heads out of the water. We hear all kinds of vocalizations: door squeaks, whistles and much more. We also observe a second newborn.
