5-6-2013 DB's Dailies: Kainoa@RI, Kaiwi@LL, RB24@KoOlina, Kolohe@Maili Pt, Irma&Buster@WSK&KCG, Benny&Kermit@WP, RI37@Pohaku Loa Wy, Rocky@MI

Kimo checked in at 0620 with the report of Kaiwi (RK96) at Lanai Lookout.

On my 2nd look at Rabbit Island at 0852 I finally glimpsed a galumphing dome amongst the left end shallow water rocks. He would haul out to the left end rock flats at 1020, and was once again the only RI resident today.

At 0722 the Billands called about receiving word of an animal at Lagoon#2, KoOlina. Dana checked in at 0755 to advise that Linda Steton had confirmed the RB24 ID. She would depart at 1629.

At 0807 Team Billand reported Kolohe (RW22) at Maili Point. This is his 2nd documented trip to the west side.

At 1015 the Billands reported Irma (R010), hauling out to Wind Sock.

They surprised me with news at 1049 that my boy Buster (RV08) was just hauling out to join Irma at Wind Sock. I saw Buster 2 days ago at Spitting Cave & China Walls. I guess that was the beginning of his journey. Irma decided to depart at 1124, and of course Buster was close behind. The Billands advised that it looked like Irma gave him the slip at Al’s Beach, Kalaeloa Campground, hauling out there, while Buster kept going toward White Plains. Barbara advised that he finally figured it out, and found Irma again at Al’s Bench.

Speaking of Buster... Happy 8th to my #3 son !!!

Dera called at 1215 to advise that she’d gotten 2 separate calls about animals at Papailoa St, and Pohaku Loa Way, on the North Shore. These locations are right together, and it may well have been a single animal. Joanne Petigrew confirmed RI37 at Pohaku Loa. She found nothing at Papailoa.

Also at 1215 Dera reported a call from Eileen with the report of "N72", Kekoa (RK72) at the Reef Runway.

At 1329 the Billands found Benny (RE74) at #1708 White Plains. Shortly thereafter they called again to advise that Kermit (R012) arrived and hauled out just down from Benny.

At 1339 posse member Christian called with the report of Rocky (RH58) at Magic Island.
