9/27/2016 DB's Dailies: J/M@Rabbit Island, Kolohe@Toilet Bowl, Hanauma Bay, Pohaku@Campbell Industrial Park, Kekoa@Maili Pt, Holokai@Turtle Bay, RW02&RL42@Makua Cliffs,

At 0800 I arrived at Makai Pier to find a likely looking rock up in the tall grass behind Seal Rock Inlet on Rabbit Island. At 0813 the rock changed position. The rock began moving down out of the vegetation and it became apparent that it was little juvenile male. His D#2 molt is 5%. He would be the only RI resident today.

 At 1124 Hanauma Bay security posse member Melissa called to advise that there was an animal at Toilet Bowl. When my tired bones got down there at 1209 I found Kolohe (RW22).

 The highlight of my day came at 1425 with a call from Diane G., advising that she had just spoken with a woman who reported having seen Kea (RN46) at the Makapuu tide pools on Sunday afternoon ! The ID was by tag. I had just seen him at Rabbit Island the day before, when he stopped by to show me his 40% molt.

 Team Billand reported Pohaku at Campbell Industrial Park at 0630. She would enter the water at 0702 and after a bit of foraging departed at 0730.

 At 0823 the Billands found Kekoa (RK72) at Maili Point. RW02 & RL42 were their next finds, together at Makua Cliffs at 1026.

 Dr. Tom sent shots of his find of Holokai (RG40) at the Elbow, Turtle Bay at 1640.

 RW02 & RL42
