10/21/2016 DB's Dailies: Kekoa&RK36@Rabbit Island, Kaiwi@Outrigger Canoe Club, R8HE,RL42&RW02@Makaha, Ka'ale@20Min, Kerby&Ka'ena@30Min, 10-21-16, Y/N, Kainoa,Kea,Cass&Kekoa@RI

Upon arrival at Makai Pier at 0755 I found the two member cast of the Rabbit Island cast for the day. Both were left of 2BS. Kekoa (RK72) was a piece of cake since his molt continues (20%). The other animal was a day long project. My 1040 I was reasonably sure that I had RK36, but it would not be until I looked at the shots on the computer that I could definitely see all the required markers to make an RK36 ID. His is lookin’ pretty ratty, and is due to molt in the first week of November so maybe he is scouting locations.

 At 0730 Team Billand reported RL42 at the Makaha site where R8HE has been hangin’ out. R8HE would arrive to join her at 0837.

 At 1312 Barbara advised that RW02 had now joined the cast. She reported that R8HE had reported at noon. At 1429 she reported that RW02 had also departed , leaving only RL42 at the site.

 At 1429 Barbara found Ka’ale (RH32) at the 20Min mark on the KP trail, and further on at 1512 she reported Kerby (RW08) & Ka’ena (RO40) at the 40Min mark.

 At 1633 Colleen sent photos of Kaiwi (RK96) at Outrigger Canoe Club today. Thank you Colleen !! 

At 1207 an Aliza (NOAA) text advised that Cass (RG06) had done well over night and tests & x-rays were done, and that she was now in surgery. Not 100& sure what the surgery was about so I’ll wait for a statement. Another Aliza text at 1649 advised that Cass was out of surgery & in recovery.

 In the Yesterday’s News department, Mark Sullivan (NOAA) sent shots from yesterday’s Cass mission to RI. Thank You Mark !!
