4/1/2017 DB's Dailies: RIP & UU@Rabbit Island, R3CU@Ka'ena Point, Kaiwi@Makalei BP, Kekoa&RK36@Nani Kai Beach, Benny@ Zablan Bch, Nanakuli, Pohaku@Maili BP

When I arrived at Makai Pier at 0745 I found what would prove to be RIP (RR70), moving down from the vegetation line, right of 3BS on Rabbit Island.

 At 0856 he spied a smaller animal just starting to haul out, and quickly responded to the water line. I had no opportunity to get an ID on the new arrival. It appeared to be smaller than RIP, but not small. It was all over in seconds, and RIP returned to snooze mode for the rest of the day.

 Marilyn & Lesley did the End of the World trek. I suppose its better than being skunked, but to have a single animal after all that trekkin’ is tough. They found R3CU on the back beach at Ka’ena Point. Excellent ID shots !!

Team Billand reported a probably overnighted RK36 at Nani Kai at 0620.

 Kekoa (RK72) showed up next and the two did a bit of tussling in the water, but Kekoa would ultimately haul out to Nani Kai at 0817.

 At 0930 the Billands reported the Benny (RE74) at Zablan Beach, Nanakuli.

 At 1004 they found Pohaku (RO28) at Maili Beach Park.

 My very most favorite Canadian posse people, Todd & Darlene (this year accompanied by fledging posse niece Jessica) checked in with the report of Kaiwi (RK96) at Makalei Beach Park. They just got off the plane yesterday, and immediately changed into posse mode and got to work.
