2-11-2014 DB's Dailies: Kaiwi@TBL, 2 U/U & 1 U/M@RI, M&M,Haupu&RIP@WP, Kermit@KR
At 0915 I got a call from Hanauma Bay advising that Security Guard posse member Nani, had reported an animal at Toilet Bowl. When I arrived at 940 I found Kaiwi (RK96) snoozin’ near TBL. Some blood could be seen at the right corner of her mouth at the dehooking site, but her behavior was, in every way, completely normal.
At 1143 I found an U/M, and 2 U/U at Rocky Right Beach, on Rabbit Island. I was never able to confirm ID s on any of these critters.
At 1318 a male in a green kayak and a female in a red,white&blue kayak, hauled out 40 ft right of 3BS. Fortunately DLNR (DOFAW) personnel were working on RI today, and posse member Ilana met them upon arrival and got them off the island immediately.
At 0806 Team Billand reported M&M (R020) fronting the Snack Shack, White Plains.
At 0910 Ocean Safety called with the report of an animal at Nanakuli Beach Park. Team Billand confirmed the Pohaku (RO28) ID at 1217.
At 0952 the Billands reported Kermit (R012) foraging off shore of Kermit’s Reef. He hauled out at 1007.
At 1040 the Billands reported the arrival of Haupu (RB24 to Tower #2, White Plains.
At 1410 RIP (RR70) arrived to haul out to M&M, fronting the WP Snack Shack.
Mark Sullivan (NOAA) sent shots from yesterday’s RI mission, showing RK36, Nani (RK60) and Kekoa (RK72) at Rocky Right Beach. Thank You Mark !!!
Per my favorite Molokaian, Diane Pike.... T21M is visiting her.
