Jan 13, 2014 DB's Dailies: RK36,Kolohe,Kainoa&Aukai@RI, Makaiwi,Kermit,RIP@WP, Kekoa@WP, Haupu@Maili, Pohaku@Electric Beach,

At 1007 I found what would prove to be RK36 at Right Greenery on Rabbit Island. On a pan at 1224 he was gone, but hauled out again to Seal Rock Inlet at 1233.
At 1125 Kolohe (RW22), Kainoa (RN04) & Aukai (RL12) hauled out 70 ft right of 3BS on RI.
Unfortunately they would be run off by the low light of the day, the arrival to 2 males on a yellow kayak at 1159. The 2 guys landed right at the location of the 3 animals and immediately moved to the 3. Kolohe and Kainoa began to hurriedly move toward the water with the guy in light blue right behind, taking photos or video the entire move. He then returned to Aukai and again dogged her all the way to the water line as she ran for it. 

After that start the two explored the island climbing up into the grass area and hiking the rim all the way to the far side "ear", where they were met by Amarissa and her DOFAW people who were working out there today. They were escorted back to their kayak and departed at 1355. They were met by DOCARE Officer, Maui upon their arrival at Kaupo Beach Park at 1430.  PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Finally caught in the act.... so glad Amarissa was there !! 
At 0722 Team Billand reported Makaiwi (R4DF) fronting the snack bar at White Plains. At 0823 she would be joined by Kermit (R012), and they would be joined by RIP (RR70) at 0945.
At 1007 the Billands advised that Eileen had called with the report of Kekoa (RK72) at the Reef Runway.
At 1345 they reported Haupu (RB24) at Nanakai Beach, Maili.
At 1451 the Billands found Pohaku (R028) at Electric Beach.
The Billands called at 1613 to advise that they had gotten a call from Coast Guard helicopter pilot posse member Harry, reporting that on a fly by he’d seen "a Mom & pup at the Reef Runway. Armed with Eileen’s reported I’d say he say Kekoa and a larger unknown animal.
