SEASIDE — Humpback whales in the Seaside Cove have been sighted feeding on bait fish for hours, the Seaside Aquarium reported Saturday.

Humpbacks are not unusual to the Oregon coast but they tend to stay off shore for the most part, staff member Tiffany Boothe of the aquarium said. They come into the cove when bait fish are plentiful, usually during the months of July through September.
