6/17/2016 DB's Dailies: Kaiwi&Pup@AD, Nani,Kekoa,Kala,RM38&Cass@Rabbit Island, Kolohe@Lanai Lookout, RL42@Makua Cliffs, Nihoa&Pup

Marilyn found Kaiwi&Pup(D#2) in the middle of the SPZ, snoozin’ away, at 0530. I came crawlin’ in at 0550 and was relieved by Jason O. Mahalos to Jason, Diane G., Melanie, Joanna, Gayle & of course, Missus W..

 Here is a little factoid worth noting. Technically, Kaiwi is a 4 year old, and therefore a Subadult female, BUT, does giving birth qualify her to become an actual Adult ??? That is the kind of thing running around in this bald guy’s mind so I asked my Sensei, Tracy. Yep........ she are a Woman !!! 

With all slots covered at AD, I had a chance to put in a little quality time at Makai Pier. At 0858 I found Kekoa (RK72)(I think he has been my U/M of late), Nani (RK60)(she was my U/F a day or so ago). Kala, Cass (RG06) & a brief appearance by RM38, at Rabbit Island.

 At 1218 I found Kolohe (RW22) on the flats at Lanai Lookout.

 Team Billand checked in initially at 0812 with the report of a foraging animal off shore of Makua Cliffs. They would confirm the RL42 by N20 bleach. At 0911 they reported her hauled out to Makau Cliffs.

 Posse member Tammy T., checked in with shots of Nihoa&Pup(R912) at the Mokuleia pup site.

 To my total surprise I got ValMail this afternoon from the outback of some place called Minnesota. She had spent the day with the 5 Hawaiian Monk Seals they have at the Minnesota Zoo. During the presentation she chanced to see Team Billand & Tony Q., on the big screen, at White Plains !!
