Sparky (L-58) had a tall dorsal fin with a rounded tip and a slight wave in the middle. He was the first calf of Tanya (L-5) and had a younger brother Flash (L-73) born in 1985. They were a very tight group and were rarely seen apart. Sparky was frequently observed with teenage males from the Southern Resident community around him. Perhaps he was serving as a role model or "big brother."
