Male Elephant seal Vocalization

Normally in past years, during the winter and summer, the 2 male elephant seals have stayed around the middle island. This year, this one large male hauled out onto the rocks to the south of the tower for a few days. In this video, note the clicking sound that he emits when his head is in the air. Thanks to Chris Blondeau and Jane Johnston for getting the footage for this unique piece of video late one evening in late December, when they were out relieving for Mike and Carol at the MPA.
