2-28-2014 DB's Dailies: U/M&Aukai@RI, Haupu,M&M@WP, Duke@Molokai, U'ilani@RR, R018@Mokuleia, Kermit&Ewa Girl@WSK, RIP,Kolohe&Kerby@Maili Pt, Luana,U/F,Ka'ena@KP

At 0735 I found an U/M at Right Middle Cliff on Rabbit Island. I thought I had Kekoa , but a late afternoon call from Eileen reporting an animal at the Reef Runway, similar in size to U’ilani who was already there, calls my possible ID into question. I’m going with an U/M of juvenile side at my end. Difficult viewing conditions had everything to do with that decision.
At 1109 on a pan I found what would later prove to be Aukai (RL12) amongst the water front rocks, 50 ft right of 1BS.
At 0856 Team Billand reported Haupu (RB24) at Tower#2 a White Plains.
At 1034 Molokai Di (Diane Pike) called to advise that she had spent quality time with Duke (RA12) on Molokai today. I’ve just assumed over the weeks that he has been MIA at RI, that he was on Molokai, but its great to have that confirmation.
At 1050 Team Billand found U’ilani (RN36) at the Reef Runway.
At 1125 the Billands reported the arrival of M&M (R020) to join Haupu at WP.
A 1912 call from Kimo Smith brought word from the end of the world. He found Luana (RN58) and the new female from yesterday’s news together on the back beach, and Ka’ena (RO40) a Ka’ena’s Pool. His internet is down so no more info is available.
Dana checked in at 1312 with a report of R018 (R6FA) at Mokuleia. He is one of the "old dudes" and had last been seen on Oahu on 6-12-13. He has, however, been reported regularly on Kauai. Obviously the boy is back .
At 1426 Team Billand reported Kermit (R012) & Ewa Girl (RS00), Ewa Girl would depart at 1626, probably due to nearby fishermen. Kermit remained.

At 1501 Team Billand reported RIP (RR70), Kolohe (RW22) & Kerby (RW08) at Maili Point .

Thanks Diane T for your help yesterday with M and Haupu and Kermit and Ewa Girl.

We were able to find more seals, educate at other beaches, and meet up with our faithful cabin volunteers from Michigan who will soon return.
