6-25-2013 DB's Dailies: Kainoa@RI, Buster@SB, Pohaku&Benny@Waikomo's
Rainy conditions made observations a challenge today. Despite lots of lookin' it would be a call from Ocean Safety at 0939 that brought my first critter. They reported an animal just hauling out to Sandy Beach (gee.... I wonder who that could be?). At 0950 I found Buster (RV08) waiting for me fronting the Half Point break at SB. I cordoned him off and he has remained the rest of the day. Buster departed at 1736.
After many attempts at trying to see what was happening on Rabbit Island, I finally found Kainoa (RN04) drapped across a Kainoa sized rock fronting Left Greenery on RI. Once again he was the only RI resident.
The highlight of the day came with a called from Team Billand at 0836, reporting Pohaku (RO28) and Benny (RE74) together, at Waikomo's, 1/2 mile west of Keaau's on the west side. This marks the first sighting of Pohaku since she weaned her pup on Kauai, on or about 6-20-13.
In the Yesterday's News department I received shots of RI37 at the Bird Refuge on the N.S . This was the first sighting of our girl since she was last seen on Kauai on 5-10-13.
Buster at Sandy's ... I think he likes hanging out with DB
