At 0657 Team Billand called to advise of Pohaku (RO28) at Maili Point.
At 1037 Dana checked in advising that she had sent photos from Sandy Miller & Irene Theofanis, of an animal in Kaaawa . Photo analysis showed the animal to be KC (RK28). This is her first sighting back on Oahu, after having gone to Kauai for a birth this summer. She was last documented by Val Bloy on Kauai, on 10-10-15. (unless Val has the ability to see into the future and report back to our current day, I will assume KC was last seen October 2014 :-) She is the usual mass of scars, and has added a new wound, a healing CC wound to the left side of her head, just above the left eye. It was not there on Val’s shots.
During the same call Dana advised that R5AY was said to be at Malaekahana. A later conversation with Diane G., provided word that R5AY had been reported there yesterday, I’m unaware of any photo proof. Don Porter was told this morning that an animal was still there. Awaiting further word.
Dana forwarded a shot from Scott Sundby of what I believe to be Ua Malie (RT10), at Kawela Bay, though I’m hesitant to base an ID on a single marker. ????? At 1118 advised of a call about an animal at Nimitz Cottages.
At 1318 they confirmed the Haupu (RB24) fronting the Nimitz Pavilion. Bev reported Haupu’s departure at 1745.
At 1337 the Billands received a Hotline call about an animal in Makaha. Debbie intially responded , and at 1428 advised that there were two animals, but positive ID could be gotten. The Billands confirmed Kolohe (RW22) at 1553. At 1615 they got the RW02 ID. A witness said there had initially been 3, but one departed.
In the Yesterday’s News department, Ken Tingman sent shots of Ka’ena (RO40) & Luana (RN58) at Ka’ena Point.
