There is not much to report regarding Quest’s movements over the past ten days. Indeed, with few exceptions she has settled into a fairly predictable pattern. Most early morning and late evening locations are in the Tom Nevers neighborhood. Most daytime readings show her along the coast, south of Low Beach Road.

From Nantucket birding authority Edie Ray, we learn that Quest continues to be seen at the beach. Edie emailed recently to say that “the Nantucket Marine Mammal Stranding Team were down on the beach near the Loran Station and Tom Never’s Pond (measuring a dead Pygmy Sperm Whale that had washed up) on 2/11 and 2/12 and saw Quest both times!”

Since she’s keeping to such a small area we think residents and visitors have a pretty good chance of spotting her at the shore on most days.

    She must be doing great, she got herself a whale! Impressive move up the food chain.

  4. Maureen in MA Says:

    Sad news lately between whales and dolphins, but at least there’s nothing but good news still with our Quest! And it sounds like she has a good crew of friends to watch over her in Nantucket. 🙂

    Glad to see this update. That particular beach doesn’t provide services or lifeguards so it must be quite unspoiled.
