3-15-2-14 DB's Dailies:RM38@RI, Kea@TBL, Pohaku@Sec, Haupu,M&M@WP, Kermit@DH, Kolohe,Kerby&Benny@Maili Pt

At 0719 I found RM38 once again snoozin’ in the Morning Glory, 60 ft left of 1BS on Rabbit Island. He would move down to cool off at 0916, and enter the water at 1124. When I got back to Makai Pier at 1324 he was once again on the beach, left of 1BS.
A side note to RI life. Yesterday was landing day at RI. A Gazillion Sooty Terns and a few thousand Brown Noddys began landing. This morning the place was covered in birds. It will be difficult for a Monk Seal to get a decent day’s sleep until July, but I know they’ll try.
At 0834 Jack (at the Bay) called to advise that visitors had reported having seen a seal in the "keyhole" area, inside the reef at Hanauma Bay. The daughter reported having seen an "N... something...6) written on the side. That most definitely says Kea to me.
To support that sighting, on my 1242 Toilet Bowl check I found Kea (RN46) on the east side ledge . I rest my case.
At 0644 Team Billands advised that Linda had called with the report of an animal at Secrets. The Billands confirmed the Pohaku (RO28) ID at 0656.
At 0729 the Billand reported Haupu (RB24) at the Snack Shack, White Plains. Posse member David had cordoned her off.
At 1252 posse member Rachel called with the report of Kermit (R012) at the showers, Diamond Head. Thank you Rachel and Colleen.
At 1402 Team Billand reported Kolohe (RW22), Kerby (RW08) & Benny (RE74) at Maili Point. Kolohe would depart at 1420 (Benny wanted his spot).
At 1512 the Billands reported M&M (R020) at the White Plains showers.

Any word on Maka'iwi or Irma?

Makaiwi WAS on Maui, then last I heard she left and went back to Kona.

Nothing heard on .... Miss Irma. Prayers, we all keep hoping, keep looking for her. A day doesnt go by, I dont think of her. Hopefully she is on Niihau some where...getting fat. Miss you Miss Irma.

I wonder, is Kermit leaving us to go find her? They were an item, a cool couple for years at Plains and Kaupo, etc. I hope he finds her!!!!

And Kermit, do you know we been looking for you for come you didnt call home???? Find Irma FAT BOY...FIND MISS IRMA.

- by caller Joalina, with the good news report of R5AY "Honey Girl" hauled out in Kahuku. She's looking good and very green.
