11-24-2013 DB's Report - photos in next post
At 0702 I found an overnighted Kaiwi (RK96) at Buster Flats. She has remained all day.
At 0738 I found a 15% molted RM38 on Rocky Right Beach, Rabbit Island.
At 0911 I found Aukai (RL12) just hauling out to 3BS on RI.
On a pan to the left at 0913 I found Kainoa (RN04) just hauling out to Right Middle Cliff. He moved up and right and galumphed up to join Aukai. They remained the rest of the day.
At 0906 Cianna called with a report from a diver of having seen "N21" near Blowhole. Later interviews with divers brought info that both N21 & N46 had been seen in the area. Armed with that info I fully expected the usual 1000 Buster call at Sandy
Beach, so I was on my way from Makai Pier when the Ocean Safety call came about an animal at the east end of Sandy Beach. When I arrived at 1000 sure enough there was Buster (RV08) waiting for me. I cordoned him off and he remains. Gayle reported his departure at 1737.
Melanie had been combing the SE coast line since 1100 , and at 1258 she called with the words "found him". Sure enough she found Kea (N46), 400 yds east of he AD wall, or 100 yds beyond the "Party Tree". We cordoned him off and he remained at dark.
At 0635 Team Billand checked in with the report of Kermit (R012) & Makaiwi (R4DF) together fronting #1707, White Plains.
They called at around 0800 to advise that they had heard from Dana, reporting Pohaku (RO28) at Secrets, KoOlina.
At 1128 the Billands reported RK36 & Kolohe (RW22) together at Maili Point. I didn’t realize it until Barbara commented that this was two Kolohes together. Kauai Kolohe, and our RI Kolohe.
At 1133 Cianna called with word from Eileen that Ewa Girl (RS00) was at the Reef Runway.
Posse member Jen Christian called at 1134 reporting an animal on North Beach, MCBH. By 1149 she had confirmed the Right Spot (R016) ID. She reported that Right Spot was gone by 1400. Photos are on the way.
At 1400 Team Billand reported Benny (RE74) in Makaha, across from the old Cornet Store.
At 1416 Cianna called with a report of an animal at Ft. Hase Beach on MCBH. I called Jen Christian who was still on the base and being the wonderful human being that she is, she went to check on the animal. At 1422 she reported a very green dude, and after some guidance, she came back with a confirmed T21M ID at 1430. Thanks Jen... Ya’ Done Good !!! There will be photos.
