4-29-2014 DB's Dailies: Sadie&Pup,Kainoa,Aukai,M38@RI, R018,M&M,RIP@WP, Kolohe@Sec, Luanna@Mokuleia,RW02,Ka'ena&Kerby@KP

The bulk of the Rabbit Island cast was there on my first look at 0640. Sadie & Pup (RB12)(D#26) were doing the first of 3 observed feeds, between 3 swim session. At 3BS was Kainoa (RN04), and at Seal Rock Inlet was Aukai (RL12). At 1238 M38 would haul out to join Aukai, but would move on to Kainoa, for a few seconds, and then to Sadie & Pup again for just a few seconds. After that I did not see him again.
At 0706 Team Billand reported R018 at #1706/07, White Plains. He would be gone on their 1408 recheck.
At 0735 they reported M&M (R020) hauling out briefly to #1708, but she would return to the water for some buoy play time, then hauling out again at 0741 fronting Tower#1, at WP.
At 1141 the Billands received a report of 2 animals hauling out to Secrets, however upon arrival they found only Kolohe (RW22).
At 1245 I got a call from Ocean Safety advising that their Magic Island lifeguard had reported finding "a decomposing seal head on the rocks". I notified Dalin . At 1312 they called again to advise that it was a large fish head. I notified Dalin but she decided to go check anyway . At 1527 she confirmed that it was, in fact, a large fish head.
At 1408 the Billands reported finding RIP (RR70) with M&M at #1708.

Tracy checked in at 1439 to advise that she had gotten an N58 bleach on Luanna (RN58) at the Mokuleia birth beach, and an N13 bleach on RW02 at Ka’ena Point. She also advised that she had seen Ka’ena (RO40) and Kerby (RW08) there as well. Photos will follow tomorrow.

4-28-2014 - Lesley's Windward and Turtle Bay Trek

Our Windward & TBR monitoring. We also put down the pup SPZ, cleaned the equipment. Dana & Jeannie arrived to help transport the equipment to be washed and stored. A GREAT team work.   Aloha, Lesley 

4-28-2014 DB's Dailies: Sadie&Pup,Kainoa&U/F@RI, Kaiwi@CW, R018,Buster,RIP@WP, Pohaku@PC, La'akea&Meli@TB, R5AY@Malaekahana

At 0642 I found Sadie & Pup (RB12)(D#25) doing the first of 3 observed swim sessions. I also observed 3 feeds between water sessions. The kid is gettin’ plump.
At 0957 I became aware of an U/F on the left end rock flats. No ID was ever possible.
She was joined by Kainoa (RN04)(1054) at 1040. I’m happy to report that I saw him using his left fore flipper while climbing the rocks.
At 1307 I found Kaiwi (RK96) at China Walls.
At 0623 Team Billand reported an overnighted R018 at #1708, White Plains.
At 0727 Buster (RV08) hauled out to join him, however it was a brief stay. They had words and Buster immediately departed, only to haul out to the fence line at 0827. R018 would enter the water at 0742.
At 0742 the Billands reported that Terri had called about a possible Pohaku at Paradise Cove. Diane Tekai would confirm the Pohaku (RO28) ID at 1029.
At 0946 the Billands advised they were responding to a Cianna call about an animal at Access 186D, Ewa Beach. When they arrived they found nothing however they did see an U/U foraging near Access 185C. It could be anybody of course, but since T21M had been in that area the last 2 days, he has to be high on the possible list.
Diane Gabriel called at 1103 bring word of La’akea (RK82) and Meli (RF20) together at the elbow, Turtle Bay.
She also advised that she had seen R5AY at 1000 at Malaekahana. Her molt was 100%.

At 1506 Team Billand called with the report of the arrival of RIP (RR70) to #1708, White Plains.
** Side note there was an animal on Moku Nui today... no pictures, no proof, but believed to be Aukai. The KSK folks called it into the hotline and the DLNR folks were on island doing some restoration and cleanup.

4-26-2014 DB's Dailies: Sadie&Pup,Kainoa,M38&U/F@RI, T21M@Ewa Beach

At 0654 I found Sadie&Pup (RB12)(D#24), Kainoa(RN04) & M38 on Rabbit Island. Mom and pup did 3 feeds and 3 swims in my presence.
At 0800 I found an U/F on the left rock flats at RI.
At 1145 M38 would enter the water and at 1158 hauled out to join the U/F, at the left end flats.
At 1149 Melanie called with the report of Kaiwi (RK96) at China Walls. She had not been there on Marilyn’s earlier check.
At 0629 the Billands posse member, Rich called them to advise that his "buoy baby" was at White Plains. The Billands confirmed the M&M (R020) ID.
At 0641 Buster (RV08) arrived and he and M&M hauled out together fronting Tower#1, WP.
At 1348 the Billands reported R018 & RIP (RR70) arrived and hauled out to #1707, WP. RIP would depart at 1723.

My all time favorite Canadian posse people, Todd & Darlene called at 0850 to advise that while visiting friends in Ewa Beach yesterday, they found T21M on the beach, with signs up, behind the friends house. He apparently remained all day. She assumed that he had been reported because of the signs so she didn’t call me. Darlene called again at 1339 to advise that she had talked to her friend again today and the animal is still there. I am unaware of any calls today on this haul out.
