Orca sounds recorded by D-tags during "carousel feeding"

Sounds of Norwegian killer whales feeding on herring, recorded by a D-tag: First, echolocation clicks, to probe their environment. Second, a whale slaps its tail into a ball of herring, incapacitating them. Last, overlapping pulsed tonal calls, likely for communication and coordination. (courtesy of Ari Shapiro)
