At 0604 I found an overnighted Kea (RN46) tucked into the Naupaka on the outfall at Sandy Beach. He would move down to cool off mid day, and back up to the Naupaka in the evening. He remains at dark.

 At 0940 , from Makai Pier, I found what would prove to be Kaiwi (RK96) at Seal Rock Inlet on Rabbit Island. She would relocate to 3BS at 1053.

 At 1128 Kekoa (RK72) hauled out to join here. After some interaction Kaiwi entered the water at 1145 with Kekoa right behind her. I watched them for a few minutes in the water , but ultimately lost them.

 On a pan at 1145 I found a newly arrived Nani (RK60) & Kainoa (RN04) together at 1BS at the left end of the beach. Nani’s molt is 75%.

 Diane Gabriel called at 0720 from the Hotline to advise of a call about “4DE”, Makaiwi (R4DE) at Crozier Dr., Waialua. She said the caller called again a few minutes later to report that she had departed.

 At 0811 Colleen Heyer called to advise that T21M had been at her house at 0615 ,but was gone on her 2nd check. She said T990 was still in the bushes.

Christian Young called at 0935 to advise that T990 was out from under the bushes, and snoozin’ on the water front rocks

 At 0830 Team Billand advised that they had gotten a Dana call about 2 animals at Guard Rails. They confirmed the Kolohe (RW22) & Pohaku (RO28) ID.

 The Billands called at 1549 with the report of a 100% molted , Nihoa (R912) at Keaau’s.

 Dana called at 1820 with word of “a green animal” at Kaimana. Awaiting further word.
