10/30/2014 DB's Dailies Kea&Buster@SB, Duke,Kolohe,UF, 2 UU@RI, RIP@Maili Pt, Pohaku@Banyans, Haupu@WP

At 0600 I found an overnighted Kea (RN46) in the Naupaka, at the Sandy Beach outfall. Posse member Barbara called at 0702 to advise that Kea had entered the water, swimming off to the west. At 0943 I was sitting there waiting for his return. He arrived and galumped up to the sand , fronting the Naupaka. I got the SPZ up just milliseconds ahead of 3 tour buses. Kimo Smith called at 1325 to advise that Buster (RV08) was hauling out to join Kea on the outfall. When I got there, at 1335 they were both there. After a recheck of RI, I returned to Sandy Beach at 1439 to find that Buster & Kea were swimming in the shallows fronting the outfall area. Kea would haul out again at 1447. Buster remained in the water, and finally departed at 1457. I did not see him again . Kea remains at dark. 

Rabbit Island observations were made difficult today due to white water impacting the Lanai, and off and on rain. I had a cast of 5 critters , however, only Duke (RA12) & Kolohe (RW22) were identified. The others were an U/F medium sized animal with a new coat & 2 red tags, and a large and a small U/U.

Team Billand reported RIP (RR70) a Maili Point at 0703.

At 0712 Dana called with the report of Pohaku (RO28) at Banyan’s, KoOlina. The Billands confirmed at 0752.

At 1505 the Billands called to advise that life guards reported an animal arriving near the fence line at White Plains. Beverly Rexrode responded and confirmed the Haupu (RB24) ID. She advised that Haupu departed at 1635.

 In the Yesterday’s News department, Mary Miyashiro sent shots of Rocky’s daughter, RF58, on Kauai.

 Kimo Smith sent shots of his Ka’ena Point trek yesterday. He found RW02 @ Camp Erdman, Luana (RN58) @ the birth beach , Mokuleia, Nihoa(R912) @ Hidden Beach, RL42 & BG)R303) at the point. On the Waiane side trail he found RK36 at the 30 min mark, and Ka’ena (RO40) at the 20 min mark.

Thanks Miss Mary from Kauai, for the shots of Rocky's Girl. Thank god she she survived those dog bites from those wild dogs on July 30th. She is looking good. Those scars are horrible around her neck...god bless her.

Happy Halloween Miss Donna...cute shot of Benny and IRMA in costume.

Thanks to Mary Jo, Jean Jasina, Bev Rexrode and Miss Laurie for helping us out yesterday with Pohaku and Haupu.

Funny thing we checked out Plains many times through out the day, and as soon as we got out to KoOlina Haupu pulled into White Plains. And we werent going back after over an hour in TRAFFIC for a second day in a row. So I asked Bev if she could take care of the hauled out seal and she did. THanks. Glad you got the id before she left Plains.

Laurie called in the evening that Pohaku was still at Banyans, with the wine and cheese gang on golf carts...THANKS LAURIE for being there with Pohaku..

And thanks to Matthew of KoOlina for making the call about Pohaku.

Lastly..Prayers to Miss Dana, hope the surgery works.
