2/18/2016 DB's Dailies: Kea,Kainoa&RG32@Rabbit Island, RIP,Kekoa,Kolohe,Kimo Kai@Maili Point, Rocky@Kaimana, Ka'ena&BG@Ka'ena Point, RW02@Mokuleia,Holokai@Turtle Bay

It was well into my 2nd look at Rabbit Island before a creature entered my life. At 1000 Kea (RN46) galumphed out of the water and up into the Morning Glory at the 3BS.

 On a pan at 1009 I found that Kainoa (RN04) had hauled out fronting 1BS and was just settling down next to the long, to the left of the sign.

 On a pan at 1037 I suddenly found RG32 snoozin’ in the Morning Glory left of 3BS. He must have been hiding up in the tall grass all along, since there was to trail coming up from the water line. All three would move down mid day, and all 3 remained the day.

 Team Billand spotted two swimming heads moving west off shore of Nanakuli, at 0847 and at 0848 Barbara confirmed the Kolohe (RW22) & Kekoa (RK72) ID.

 At 0900 they reported RIP (RR70) at Maili Point and at 0935 Kolohe would arrive to join him , followed at 0942 by Kekoa. At 1005 they reported the arrival of Kimo Kai (RT12). Kekoa would depart and was later seen foraging with an U/U.

 At 0948 Karen Rohter checked in with the report of Rocky (RH58) at Kaimana Beach, fronting her favorite condo. Per witnesses she had arrived at around 0800.

 Colleen Heyer was at Ka’ena Point today, and at 1122 advised that Ka’ena (RO40) & BG (R303) were out there at the End of the World today. The NOAA team was out there and elected not to vaccinate Ka’ena due his location. They did get an upside down N9 bleach on his right side however. 

According to a 3rd hand account the team did find and vaccinate RW02 at Mokuleia, and Holokai (RG40) at Turtle Bay.

 1713 Dana mail brought word of R5AY in Hauula today.
