Description

This young girl WITH a data or radio pack on her back (very fancy/expensive looking) has joined my local backyard pond flock. She's been here almost regularly for about 2 weeks now. I have 4 Muscovy ducks (born & raised here on the pond) who are fed and taken care of. The Ibis's are grubbers off of the Ducks twice daily chow of whole wheat bread and Cat/Corn kibbles. Unlike the other local domesticated Ibises, this girl displays 2 additional/valuable feeding traits: she digs effectively for insects (lately "grubs") in the lawn, and she's regularly digging among the moist soil on the ponds edge (looks like shes successful at this). The data pack on her back is hardly noticeable and it doesn't seem to bother her at all. I'd like more info about this (I was once a ham radio enthusiast and I'm generally into these kinds of radio toys)... Can anyone refer me to the manufacturers product support page? If possible, I'd like to interrogate the packs data store and share its contents here. Ideally these devices should be built using lo-power Bluetooth 4 technology (with readily available Apple or Android software) so local enthusiasts can pick-up the data to upload/share online, etc.

Description

4 seahorses observed, 3 Lined (they are called that here) and 1 Longsnout. They were seen in West Palm Beach at Blue Heron Bridge, in a lagoon/estuary. Seahorses, primarily the Lined and Longsnout, are seen here regularly. I believe the 3 Lined seahorses are males and the Longsnout is a female, but I am not 100% sure. The habitat is part muck, sand, seagrass, rubble and seaweed/algae.

Walking the gardens of the Society of the Four Arts, Palm Beach, FL, there was not much in the way of animals but many beautiful plants and sculptures. Here a blue dragonfly.

Only one distant, partially obstructed view of this damsel mating wheel. I've never seen this species so I am not sure if it can be sorted from this photo.
