7-31-2014 DB's Dailies:Kainoa@RI, Aukai@SC&LL, M&M@WP, U'ilani@RR

At 0707 on my first look at Rabbit Island I found what would prove to be Kainoa (RN04) up in the Morning Glory, 40 ft left of 1BS. I would not confirm the ID until my return at 1028. He had by then moved down to the beach front incline, and his 20% molt was clearly visible.

 At 0922 Gayle called with the report of what would prove to be Aukai (RL12) at Spitting Cave. She initially thought perhaps Kaiwi, however when she looked at her photos she found that it was Aukai (RL12). Analysis here at the Monk Seal CIA confirmed the Aukai ID, by her 3 prong scar, top of head, and her right shoulder pit scar. Thank you Gayle. Ya’ Done Good !!

 Gayle wasn’t through yet. At 1209 she found Aukai (RL12) once again. This time on the cove side of Lanai Lookout. This ID was by L12 tag.

 At 0625 Team Billand reported M&M (R020) fronting #1708 at White Plains.

 At 1600 the Billands advised that Eileen had called with the report of U’ilani (RN36) at the birth beach, Reef Runway.
