8/27/2015 Holokai from Carola

Carola had the morning shift between 8 am - 11:30.... she reported only a couple of visitors.... but did see some canine paw prints in the zone....  shame because it looks like human foot prints too.

Curious little one

8/27/2015 DB's Dailies: Aukai & Nani@RI, Kaiwi@CW, Pohaku@Nanakuli, Kekoa@RR

My first Rabbit Island check of the day, at 0655 provided the cast for the day. I found Nani (RK60), and Aukai (RL12) together in the Morning Glory, left of 3BS. When I got back at 0833 they had both moved down to behind the water front rocks. Aukai would depart at 1004, and I did not see her again today. I was unable to get a molt percentage. Nani remained all day.

 Gayle called at 0933 with the report of Kaiwi (RK96) at China Walls.

 Team Billand called at 0609 to advise that Pohaku was gone from her usual Nanakuli location. At 0810 they checked in again to advise that they had found Pohaku (RO28) at Nanakuli Beach Park.

 At 1022 the Billands found Kekoa (RK72) at the Reef Runway.

(short and sweet day...)

8/26/2015 DB's Dailies: Nani&Aukai@RI, Pohaku@Nanakuli, U/U@Nanakai, Maili, Holokai@TB

My first look at Rabbit Island, at 0727 was a bust, and even when I got back for round #2 it was still bare. It would be 1135 before I saw my first critter. It would prove to be Nani (RK60), hauling out at the left end of the beach. She would reenter the water at 1220.

 At 1147, on a pan I found a 20% molted Aukai (RL12) just hauling out to Right Middle Cliff. At 1225 Nani would haul out to join her. Both remained the rest of the day.

 Despite multiple checks of the SE quadrant by both Gayle & myself, those would prove to be the only finds.

 At 0535 Team Billand called with the report of Pohaku (RO28) still at Nanakuli. Mahalos to Melina & Deb. It was the usual crop of non caring idiots. The Billands report she is 25-30 % molted. The Billands had gotten word of another animal at Nanakai Beach, Maili, however once again when they arrived they were advised by witnesses, that idiots had thrown sand and rocks at it, and it departed. A shot from Melina Clark was inconclusive as to ID, however Kimo Kai would have to be at the top of the possibles list.

 A MelanieTxt at 1350 advised that she had Holokai (RG40) at Turtle Bay.

 In the Yesterday’s News department. Val sent shots of Rocky’s boy, PK4, as well as 2 sons of Pohaku, last year’s pup RF28, and this year’s addition RG28. Thank you Val !!

 There was more Val news. She advise just moments ago that Rocky’s pup had gotten is bling today. He is now officially RG58.
So is it intentional that RO28 Pohaku's pups have RF28 and now this year RG28.... and Rocky's (RH58)  pup is RG58?  I like it makes it easy to remember and track....  

 more shiny belly shots
 back with her tire
Weaner PK4 Rocky's kid now as RG58
 RF28 Pohaku's boy
 Pohaku's littlest one RG28

8/25/2015 DB's Dailies: Aukai,Nani&UU@RI, Kolohe@Toilet Bowl, Kaiwi@China Walls, Pohaku@Nanakuli, Holokai@Turtle Bay,

At 0652 I found a 15% molted Aukai (RL12), 40 ft left of 1BS, Nani (RK60) at 3BS, and what would remain an U/U barely visible behind the water front rocks of Rocky Right Beach on Rabbit Island. That would be the RI cast for today.

 At 0852 Hanauma Bay posse members Martha & Jaime called to advise that Hanauma Bay security posse member Bautista, had reported an animal at Toilet Bowl. When I got down there at 0920 I found Kolohe (RW22) snoozin’ on the rock shelf on the east side of TBL. ID was by his partial W22 tag.

 At 1137 Gayle called with the report of Kaiwi (RK96), once again hangin’ out at her China Walls home.

 At 0650 Team Billand called with the report of a 10% molted Pohaku (RO28) at Nanakuli. They reported her departure at 0929, but then called again at 0935, with the report of her hauling out again just down the beach at Depots, Nanakuli. Mahalos to Deb, Chrissy & Kelly for the help. People and dogs continue to be a problem.

 At 1043 the Billands advised that they had been shown a photo of what they believed to be Kimo Kai , also in Nanakuli. On a later beach check, they did not find anybody, so ?????

 Karen Turner (and her new camera) sent Holokai (RG40) shots for her shift today at Turtle Bay. Thank You Karen !

Last but not least, a Happy 3rd Birthday to Kaikaina (RL54) !!
