Humpback whales give birth in the winter months - from December through
March.   They migrate from their summer feeding grounds in the Artic (or
Antarctic for the southern hemisphere whales), to their calving grounds in
Hawaii, Baja, Bermuda, etc (all over the world) each year to give birth
and mate again. 

Aloha!
