9/29/2015 DB's Dailies: Kaiwi,Kainoa,Kekoa,U/M ,RM38,Kea&Cass@Rabbit Island, Pohaku@Nanakuli, RL42@Makua Cliffs, Buster@Diamond Head, 2 U/U@Camp Erdman,

It was a bumper croppa’ critters (7) at Rabbit Island today. They would prove to be the only SE quadrant animals today. On my 0702, first look I found what would prove to be Kaiwi (RK96) & Kainoa (RN04) together at the log, in the Morning Glory, 40 ft left of 1BS. Both would later move down.

 Also at 0702 I found Kekoa (RK72) & an U/M , probably juvenile or sub adult together in the Morning Glory behind Seal Rock Inlet .

 On my 2nd look at 0810 all of the above were still there, but there was now an adult sized , old coated animal at 3BS. It would prove to be an adult male, RM38, in from Molokai. He was last home for a visit on 6-10-15. It took some time since his coat was so green, but ultimately I saw is posterior dorsal abscess, and his left side NB. He began at 3BS but would galumph down to join Kekoa & the U/M for a while, then enter the water and haul out to join Kaiiwi & Kainoa for a while. He would enter the water at 1333 with Kainoa and I did not see him again.

 On a pan at 0902 I once again found Kea (RN46) just coming into view from deeper in the Morning Glory at 3BS. He would later galumph down to hang out with Kekoa & the UM, and all went for a swim at 1320. Kea would haul out again to 3BS at 1353. He did something I don’t often see on this haul out. He galumph up into the Morning Glory, and then just kept going up into the large tufts of grass above the Morning Glory, where he went to snooze mode.

 Kekoa & the U/M arrived at the far left end of the island at 1343. Only Kekoa hauled out. He moved up to join Kaiwi.

 On a pan at 1402, I chanced to find Cass (RG06) just hauling up out of Seal Rock Inlet. She galumphed up to and into the Morning Glory and went to snooze mode.

 Team Billand checked in at 0629 having recieved a text about an animal at Depot’s , Nanakuli. It would prove to be Pohaku (RO28). Mahalos to Debbie & Sarah for all your help. Debbie advised that Pohaku departed at 1243.

 Lesley called at 0940 advising of 2 animals at Camp Erdman. She was unable to go immediately. Awaiting further info.

 At 1645 a DonnaTxt brought news and shots of an animal on the Moke’s today . Though an ID is not possible based on these shots, it does show a very skinny animal. I have zero proof, but I’d put a cat on Right Spot, since the timing is right. I checked with Tracy and she confirmed that Right Spot had weaned her pup on Molokai, last week. Chances are good that she might be back. All you North Shore and Upper East Side volunteers, be on the lookout for a skinny, green girl, with a right side posterior NB, and a notched RHF.

 A ColleenTxt at 1745 advised of an animal at Diamond Head. Of course, you are all thinkin’ Rocky..... right ? NOPE, it is Buster (RV08) !! Thank you Colleen !
