1/8/2015 DB's Dailies: Kea@BH, Aukai,Mojo,Kainoa&Buster@RI, Pohaku@Nanakuli, Kolohe@Maili Pt

On my 3rd look at Blowhole at 0817 I found Kea (RN46) in the cove on the Sandy Beach side of the Blowhole Lookout. He has remained all day. Kea was still there at dark.

 At 0908 on my 2nd look at Rabbit Island I found what would prove to be Aukai (RL12), 10 ft left of 1BS in the Morning Glory, and Mojo (RI17) directly below her on the beach near the water line. 60 ft right of 1BS, also in the Morning Glory I found Kainoa (RN04)

 At 1042, while watching the cast a head looked up from the base of the cliff, behind the Morning Glory, 40 ft left of 1BS. It was Buster (RV08). He had been there all along, and I thought it was a sand dune , until the dune’s head raised. He would later move down to the left end of the beach. His molt is 25%.

 At 0925 Ocean Safety called with the report of an animal on the beach in Nanakuli. Team Billand would later ID the animal as Pohaku (RO28).

 At 1019 the Billands found Kekoa (RK72) at the Reef Runway. He would enter the water shortly after their arrival, but remained in the area, and hauled out again to the same location at 1104.

 At 1634 Team Billand found Kolohe (RW22) at Maili Point.

 Diane Pike sent shots of Duke (RA12) & Noa (R6FI) from her 1-6-15 Molokai trek. Thank you Diane !

 Kimo Smith sent shots from his Ka’ena Point trek yesterday (1-7-14) He found Luana (RN58)at Hidden Beach, but she was just departing and he got no shots. At the point he found RW02, R330 & Kaikaina (RL54). Thank you Kimo!

 The word today is that Benny is recovering well, and is eating.
