At 0600 I found Irma (R010) waiting for me right where I’d left her last night at Makapuu Beach. Still no signs of molting, but the behavior is certainly there.
At 0608 Marilyn reported Kea (RN46) foraging amongst the rocks of Crappy Cove. She lost him at 0615 has he headed out.
At 1027 I got to Makai Pier for a Rabbit Island look. My Unknown fest continued. The 20% molted male, and the small, green female that was with him were still unknowns. I did manage to confirm Duke (RA12) at Seal Rock Inlet, and confirmed Kaiwi (RK96) at Rocky Right Beach. She was also one of my U/F from yesterday. At 1252 the newly molted small U/F arrived.
At 1102 volunteer Melanie called to advise that Kea (RN46) was hauling out 75 yds east of the AD wall. I responded, and we put up the SPZ . He would remain until 1410 when volunteer Marie reported that he had entered the water and swam straight out. She lost him shortly thereafter. Marilyn was out and about on the 4-7 shift but was batting zero until one of my derelict row posse people called at 1716 to advise that Kea was in a tide pool behind his van.
At 1124 posse member Alissa called with the report of an animal hauling out to Sandy Beach. When I arrived at 1130 I found Buster (RV08). I guess his Rocky adventure is pau. I cordoned him off and he remains.
Incidently, Colleen advised that Rocky was at Diamond Head late yesterday. No word about he whereabouts today.
Team Billand reported M&M (R020) at #1708 White Plains , at 0730.
Kimo called at 0923 to advise that he’d seen Luana, R912 & RK36 at the pup site this morning. Confirming photos recieved. R912 & RK36 quickly departed . He also advised that he’d found RW02 at Camp Erdman.
Cianna called at 1019 with the report of an animal at Pokai Bay. Team Billand would confirm the Haupu (RB24) ID at Rest Camp at 1105.
Cianna called again at 1140 to report Right Spot (R016) at one of the Mokes today. Confirming photo received.
Team Billand called to advise that posse member Eileen had called at 1240 to report Kekoa (RK72) and U’ilani (RN36) together at the birth beach, Reef Runway.
Cianna reported a animal at Maili at 1138. Team Billand confirmed the Makaiwi (R4DF) ID at 1448.
Karen Turner send shots of her visit with La’akea (RK82) at Right Spot’s Spot, Turtle Bay.
Right Spot visiting the Mokes off of Lanikai.... interesting in that she is not a usual visitor to these parts.... but I also find the angle of this photo interesting too... can't imagine where they were standing to gain that height over her....
La'akea hanging out at "right spot" beach at Turtle Bay... lol... Right Spot is a little off track at the moment... but La'akea is watching over things.
