2/26/2015 DB's Dailies: Kainoa&Mojo@RI, U/U@SC, Haupu@KoOlina Marina, BG, Ka'ena,Luana,RW02,R330&RK36@KP,

The day began at 0645, but it would be 0939 before I logged my first critter. To my happy surprise it would proved to be my 2nd born son, Mojo (RI17) at Seal Rock Inlet, on Rabbit Island. It would take a few hours but I finally saw his natural bleach on the top left side of his head, multiple times confirming the Mojo ID.

 At 1220 Kainoa (RN04) hauled out 50 ft left of 3BS. He moved up and remained the rest of the day. 

Gayle & Melanie roamed through the quadrant today. Thanks guys !! Melanie found an U/U at Spitting Cave at 1308. Though it must be carried as an U/U, my guess, based one of Melanie’s shots, would be Buster, with the scar through his left eyelid, but ??????

The Billands had by far the most interesting day. At 0745 they received a call about an animal in the KoOlina Marina channel. They arrived to find Haupu (RB24) logging in the channel. Boat operators were going above and beyond not do disturb her as she lolling in the channel. All were very aware of her and took great effort to maneuver around her. She would later move to the back of the marina, and spent considerable time hangin’ out at Quentin Kawananakoa’s yacht , and then moving back into the channel. It is amazing to me that Haupu can, in just a coupla’ flipper flaps, move from the garbage of the Maipalaoa canal, to cruisin’ amongst the yachts of the KoOlina Marina. The Billands returned to the KoOlina Marina at 1652 based on a report of a birth in the channel. They found Haupu behaving normally. There was no evidence of anything out of the ordinary having happened. 

Received a Lesley video of yesterday’s events at Turtle Bay. Check it out. Thanks to Lesley for allowing us to join in the moment.

In the Yesterday’s News department, Kimo Smith once again did the after work trek to The End of the World. On 2-25-15 he found BG (R303), Ka’ena(RO40), Luana (RN58), RW02, R330 & RK36 at Ka’ena Point. Thanks to for taking the injured Albatross to the Bird Rehab at Sea Life Park. That was most definitely above and beyond the call of duty. Ya’ Done Good !

UU (could be Buster)
Haupu at the yacht club.... this is too funny

this reminds me of days gone by when little KP2 was on Molokai hanging out at the marina
