10/15/2014 DB's Dailies: Kea @ SB, T990 @ MP, Kolohe,Duke&Kaiwi@ RI, RIP@ Maili Pt, Ua Malie & R5AY @ Turtle Bay

The first order of business was a stop at Sandy Beach at 0600 where I found an overnighted Kea (RN46), still on the outfall. He remained all day.

 Next was a run to Makai Pier at 0610 where I found an overnighted T990 right where I’d left him last night, on the east side of the pier. He would remain all day.

On my first look at Rabbit Island at 0617, I found 3 animals huddled in the Morning Glory, 40 ft left of 1BS. When I got back to the pier at 0900 all 3 had moved down onto the beachfront incline. They would prove to be Kolohe (RW22), Duke (RA12)& Kaiwi (RK96). Duke would enter the water at 1051, and at 1100 attempted to haul out to Kolohe & Kaiwi, but Kolohe intercepted him at the water line, and after a few words, Duke returned to the water. He would haul out to the far left end of the beach at 1107 where he remained the rest of the day. Kolohe & Kaiwi would remain at 1BS.

At 0730 Team Billand reported a swimming head, foraging off shore of Nimitz Jetty. They lost it at 0745. No ID was possible.

At 1554 they called with the report of RIP (RR70) a Maili Point.

Diane G., called at 1125 with news that Karen Turner had found a molting Ua Malie (RT10) & R5AY at separate locations on Kaihalulu Beach, Turtle Bay. If I'm not mistaken... last time 5AY was seen was back in June?  ( at least that's what I referenced from the blog.... but this isn't a "real" database).

 Kolohe, Duke and Kaiwi 
 Kea at Sandys
 little chubby must be eating pretty good out there 
 T990 at Makapu Beach
 old dude got himself covered in sand...
 nice shot.... but I have to laugh.... from where DB sits this is a whole lot closer than Rabbit Island... and there is a teenie spec on the beach.... but yet look at the pics from Rabbit Island... LOL just a little twist on perspective.
Well hello there honey girl....(5AY) where have you been?
 yes we're happy to see you too
 and here's her kid Ua Maile going through her molt

Happy to see Honey Girl back and looking good.
Each day as I start to read the blog I really hope to see that Irma and Kermit have returned. Also hoping that M&M is doing ok.
