He would be joined at 0941 by Kaiwi (RK96). They would remain the rest of the day. I am still unable to ID the unknown, however his molt appears to be at 20%.
A 0908 email from volunteer Thomas Sperandeo brought word, and photos of an U/F with a new coat, approximately 1/4 mile east of Kahuku Point. An ID was not possible based on that shot, however Diane Gabriel also saw the animal later. Diane’s photos arrived at 1814 and confirmed that it is Nihoa (R912) !! She’d last been seen in Haleiwa on 8-16-15. Where the girl disappeared to only Nihoa knows, but she is back with a new coat, and just as fat and happy as ever. Thank you Diga.... Ya’ Done Good !!!
