Whale Songs, Humpback Whale (Megaptera novaeangliae): Singing humpback whale recorded in The Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary waters.

Although many species of whales and dolphins are vocal, humpback whales are best known for their songs. The “humpback song” consists of sequences of sounds that are repeated over and over in a pattern. Patterns of humpback whale sounds change from year to year and can vary in different parts of the ocean. Scientists have found that male humpback whales sing while in their breeding grounds. Other humpback whale sounds have also been recorded in feeding areas. Each of the sounds made by the humpback is thought to have a distinct purpose.
