10/29/2014 DB's Dailies: Kea&Buster@SB, Duke&Kolohe@RI, Haupu@WP

At 0600 I found an overnighted Kea (RN46). He would move down and enter the water at 0637, swimming off to the west. On my 0947 recheck I found him back on the outfall, where he has remained the rest of the day. He remained at dark.

At 1010 Buster (RV08) stopped by for a brief visit. He did not see Kea , who was in a slightly different part of the outfall than usual. Buster did not haul out but checked the area, before departing to the west at 1013. Despite lotsa’ lookin’ I have not seen him again today.

On my first look at Rabbit Island I found Duke (RA12) at the left end. Access to the pier was limited today, since Hawaii 5-0 owned it until noon. When I got back at 1150 I found that Kolohe (RW22) was now at the left end with Duke.

At 0850 Team Billand reported Haupu (RB24) near the fence line at White Plains. Tracy & Angie went out today, to administer antibiotics to Haupu because of some puncture wound that were noted by the Billands a few days again. Haupu departed after the procedure, at 1013.
