Watch this video of a common dolphin superpod!

Common Dolphin Super Pod, Dana Point, CA, USA

Hello Friends.It's been a wonderful summer of observing and learning about the animals that inspire my songs. This video captures a super pod of common dolphin, 5 miles off the coast of Dana Point, CA, USA. There are hundreds of baby dolphins in this pod, and summer is the peak season for common dolphin births in this part of the world. Common dolphin are found in every ocean in the world and are the most abundant marine mammal in Southern California. They are a medium-sized, boldly-colored, energetic dolphin who will often stop what they are doing to swim toward our boat and bow-ride. I've nicknamed them the "boat-greeters" of the sea and my encounters with them have been one of the highlights of my summer. I never tire of these beautiful marine mammals, nor the joy I feel when sharing the ocean with them. What animals did you observe this summer? I'd love to hear about it or see your photos or drawings.With love from your singing naturalist and ocean animal ambassador,Birdsong #dolphins, #kidsocean #animalsongsforkids #birdsongandtheecowonders

The creator of this video suggests that the calf was throwing a tantrum when it lifted the entire lower half of its body and tail out of the water and landed it right on top of mom. What do you think?
