Canaries of the Sea

"Did you know that Beluga whales are called the Canaries of the Sea for their vocalization abilities?"

On our recent visit to Mystic Aquarium we listened to the "Canaries of the Sea." It's a pretty amazing sound. These creatures remind me more of dolphins than whales, partly because of the sounds they can make.
One whale startled Will as he swam close to the glass.
This whale is further away from the glass. The picture doesn't do justice to his size!
Ben just stared as the whales glided through the water.
Will touched the glass as the whale appeared to touch on his side.
"Singing" for on-lookers.

God is so amazing! He has made so many incredible creatures.

I remember watching a special about dolphins and the scientists were trying to mimic dolphin sounds. They could not do it because the dolphins would alternate their vocal sounds often. Man cannot imitate what God has made perfectly!
