At 0738 I found Kaiwi (RK96), at 1BS on RI. She would move up and down many times but remained there all day.
At 1145 I became aware of two partially visible critters way out on the left end rock flats. It would take many hours, but would prove to be Aukai (RL12) & Kainoa (RN04).
At 1147 on a routine pan, I found RM38 snoozin’ on the water front rocks, 90 ft right of 3BS.
The highlight of the RI day came on a pan at 1234 when I found a newly arrived Kea (RN46) on the rocks at the left end of the beach.
Team Billand’s first call came at 0743 with the report of U’ilani (RN36) at Maili Point. They checked in again at 1000 with the report of RL42 at Makua Cliffs.
At 1523 the Billands found Nihoa (R912) snoozin’ on the banks of Maipalaoa Canal.
At 1541 the Billands advised they had gotten a Dana call about an animal at Paradise Cove. Terri was reponding. At 1623 the confirmed the Benny (RE74) ID, and advised that Benny was departing. Ooops... at 1632 Benny was back on shore and galumphing his way thru the adoring hordes.
The Cobers were on R5AY&Ola duty today, and Vera sent her usual outstanding shots from today’s shift. Unfortunately, she also advise of 4 morons in a jeep, 4 wheeling the beach, passing right along side the SPZ, running Mom & Pup into the water. She said that “Turtle Bay security took care of it”, but I doubt that the taking care was probably not as severe as would be deserved. Thank you Vera !
In the Yesterday’s News department posse member Rikki Goble sent shots from her shift yesterday. She also reported that BG (R303) was still at Kahuku Pt.
