Team Billand called at 0720 with the report of Makaiwi (R4DF) at Nanakuli.
A DanaTxt at 1223 advised of an U/U at Sunset Beach. It was thought that Right Spot was at the top of the possibles list, but the shot received was inconclusive , so it must remain an U/U.
I found mail, this morning, from our pal Val, on Kauai, advising that Rocky (RH58) had arrived on Kauai yesterday. Lloyd Miyashiro’s shots confirm the arrival. A call from Val today at 1331 advised that Rocky had pupped . I confirmed that with Tracy.
In the Yesterday’s News department, shots from Diane Terai, received last night gave a solid look at PO3's ventral side. I had my own opinion, but I sent the shots off to my Senseis Thea & Tracy at NOAA, for a professional opinion. Happily , they agreed with my thinking. PO3 is a male.
At 1833 posse member Vicki Hangai called with the report of an animal with a transmitter patch on it’s back, at Crappy Cove, Sandy Beach. When I arrived at 1840 I found Benny (RE74), and Vicki & I cordoned him off. All was well until two local people and their two yappie dogs arrived, insisting upon talking loudly to Benny. While I was trying to stop that behavior the dogs entered the zone and a combination of all that caused Benny to depart at 1916. We picked up the equipment and called it a day. Sorry, Benny!
