At 0708 on my 1st Rabbit Island check I found Kolohe (RW22)&RM38 in the Morning Glory , 40 ft left of 1BS , Duke (RA12) fronting 1BS, and a 35% molted RK36 at Right Greenery.
Duke, Kolohe&RM38 had moved down, at 0952. Out of the Morning Glory came a small animal that I’d had no idea was even there. The guys went nuts, and the battling and jockeying for position. By their behavior I thought must be a female, but it was too small. It would prove to be Kainoa, (RN04), a male. Males will often exhibit that behavior , protecting young males and females. Kainoa finally tired of all the hassles, and moved back up into the Morning Glory until everybody left.
At 1016 what would prove to be Aukai (RL12) hauled out and galumphed up to hang out with the boys. She would lead them all into the water at 1030.
I spent most of the day doing Kea checks periodically at Sandy Beach. Finally, on my 1302 recheck, there he was on the outfall. I cordoned him off.
Diane T., called with the report of Pohaku (RO28) at Paradise Cove.
At 1414 Team Billand reported Makaiwi (R4DF) at Iroquois Point.
