Just for curiosity..

Did you know that:
We have a resident population of Fin Whales (Balaenoptera physalus) and Bryde’s Whales (Balaenoptera edeni) here in the Sea of Cortes. This populations spend all years in Sea of Cortes waters, traveling north and southward looking for food and breeding areas.

California (North Pacific) Gray Whale’s Population Migration Route:
Gray whales are famous for their extensive migrations. Gray whales travel back and forth between the cold Arctic seas where they spend summer and the warm Mexican waters where they send winter, wish amounts to about 12,400 mi (20,000 Km) of travel a year.
The Gray whales’ southward journey takes approximately two and a half months: they leave the Artic by late September and arrive in the waters off southern California and Baja by late December. This migration coincides with the reproductive activity of the whales, and once in the warm waters, most females either mate or give birth. By late February or March, Gray begin their return to northern waters.

North Pacific Humpback Whale’s population migration route:
The migration cycle takes about a year. The humpback will typically spend 3 to 4 months at their feeding grounds. These feeding gorunds extends from the west coast of California to Washington State, for the North Pacific population. From there, they will travel more than 10,000 km south to their breeding grounds. This trip can take between 2 to 3 months. The North Pacific population will choose to migrate to one of 3 general areas in which they will either give birth, reproduce on just tag along for the ride as may be the case for those whales that have not yet reached sexual maturity. The 3 most popular breeding areas are: Bay of Banderas (Jalisco), Islas Revillagigedo and Baja California Peninsula. They will spend an average of 3 to 4 months in these grounds. Then, they return to the north to feed again in preparation for next years migration. And so, the cycle repeats.

Humpback Whale:
Is a baleen whale. One of the larger rorqual species, adults range in length from 12-16 matres (40-50 ft) and weigh 36,000 kilograms (79,000 lb). The humpback has a distinctive body shape, with unusually long pectoral fins and a knobbly head. IT is an acrobatic animal, often breaching and slapping the water. Males produce a complex whale song, which lasts for 10 to 20 minutes and is repeated for hours at a time. The purpose of the song is not yet clear, although it appears to have a role in mating.
Found in oceans and seas around the world, Humpback Whales typically migrate up to 25,000 kilometers each year. Humpbacks feed only in summer, in polar waters and migrate to tropical or sub-tropical waters to breed and give birth in the winter. During the winter, Humpbacks fast and live off their fat reserves. The species’ diet a diverse repertoire of feeding methods, including the spectacular bubble net fishing technique.

Professional football arrived in New England on Nov. 16, 1959, when a group of local businessmen, led by former public relations executive William H. "Billy" Sullivan Jr. was awarded the eighth and final franchise in the new American Football League. One week later, Northwestern University running back Ron Burton was selected as the franchise's first draft choice and Syracuse running back Gerhardt Schwedes was selected as the team's first local choice. The American Football League merged with the National Football League in 1970.
