Birds are disturbed by a gray whale stirring up the surface. The whale has rolled onto its side to stir up the tide flats beneath and feed on shrimp buried in the sand. Its pectoral fin shows on the right side of the photo; it's tail is on the left.
I had to look up these birds; they're surf scoters.
