3/30/2015 DB's Dailies: Kaiwi@CW, Pohaku & Kolohe@Maili Pt, Nihoa@Maipalaoa, R5AY&Ola, Benny&La'akea@ Turtle Bay

Rabbit Island was birds...birds...& more birds. The rest of my trek thru the quadrant was equally boring, so when Gayle called at 1158 with the report of being with Kaiwi (RK96) at China Walls, it made the whole day. Thanks Gayle. Kaiwi has been MIA for 8 days, so it was great to have her back. 

Diane Gabriel was on R5AY & Ola duty this morning , when she reported Benny (RE74), and a few minutes later, La’akea (RK82) to Right Spot’s Spot, Turtle Bay, at 0847.

 Team Billand checked in at 1002 with the report of Kolohe (RW22) & Pohaku (RO28) together at Maili Point.

 At 1120 they found Nihoa (R912) snoozin’ at the Maipalaoa Canal.

 In the Yesterday’s News department, I found RikkiMail waiting for me this morning. As you will recall an animal was reported at Magic Island yesterday. Rikki advised this morning that she and posse member Shannon responded and found what would prove to be Rocky (RH58), snoozin’ in her favorite trough. Much Mahalos to Rikki & Shannon.

Beautiful shot of miss Kaiwi

 Kolohe that's a whole lot of woman you are flirting with.

 Nihoa... big momma
Benny and La'akea

3/29/2015 DB's Dailies: RM38&U/M@RI, RW02@Yokes, U/U@Magic Island, Kolohe@Maili Pt, RL42@Makua Cliffs, Pohaku@Uleawa's, Maili

Despite M,M&M (Marilyn,Melanie&Myself) combing the SE quadrant, the only critters noted were the two on Rabbit Island. At 0744 I found RM38 snoozin’ at the log at the left end , and once again an Unknown male snoozin’ behind Seal Rock Inlet at the right end. As has been the case of late, I was unable to ID this young male. There simply isn’t anything to work with at 8/10th of a mile. Bleach Boy intervention is sorely needed.

 At 0958 I got a call from Ocean Safety, reporting an animal at Yokes. Then Billands would confirm the critter as RW02, by his new N62 bleach.

 At 1008 Ocean Safety called again with the report of an animal at Magic Island. I informed the Hotline. I’ve received no further word.

 At 1049 Team Billand found Kolohe (RW22) at Maili Point. At 1205 they called again with the report of RL42 at Makua Cliffs.

 At 1236 the Billands found Pohaku (RO28) at Uleawa’s, Maili.

 In the Yesterday’s News department, posse member Ken Tingman stopped by to see R5AY&Ola, and then continued on to The End of the World, where he found Ka’ena(RO40),RW02),Luana(RN58)&Squinty (R330) at Ka’ena Point.
