2/27/2015 DB's Dailies: Kaiwi@RI, Kea@BH, Haupu@L#2, KoOlina, Benny@L#4, KoOlina, R5AY&P01@Turtle Bay,

At 0700 I arrived at the Blowhole Lookout to find Kea (RN46) snoozin’ in the cove on the Sandy Beach side of the lookout. He has remained all day.

 At 0834 I found what would prove to be Kaiwi (RK96) next to the log, in the Morning Glory, 40 ft left of 1BS on Rabbit Island. She would later move down near the water line where she remained the rest of the day.

 At 0827 Team Billand reported Haupu (RB24) lolling in Lagoon#2, KoOlina. Mahalos to Warren & Terri !

 At 1526 the Billands advised that they had gotten a Dana call about an animal at Lagoon#4, KoOlina, with a transmitter on it’s back. At 1600 the Billands confirmed that it was the Benny (RE74). The Billands advised that he look healthy and seems to have gained some wait. He had last been reported, via map off Malaekahana on the 20th. His last stop in the west quadrant had been at White Plains on 2-13-15.

 The Billands reported that a maintenance person at Secrets told them there had been an animal there all day yesterday. There had been no calls, and they said signs were still up this morning.

I got mail from Karen Banes this morning advising that there had been an animal reported at Paradise Cove yesterday. Again, there had been no calls. I’m wondering if these two reports might not be the same critter, but ???
  Kea - I love this shot
 Little porky
Benny at Lagoon 4 Welcome Back Benny boy!
 Benny and his belly patch
 Haupu oh... no oh.... this makes us all so nervous !
