Description

Twice today I saw this lovely bird! She (he?) is wearing three tags! On the right leg, there's what appears to be either a black or dark blue tag. On the left leg, by the joint, is a red/green tag and at the "ankle" is a silver tag. On both occasions, she was in the company of approximately 35 other ibis. They were eating with three Muscovy ducks in my backyard.

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.

The American White Ibis (Eudocimus albus) is a species of bird in the ibis family Threskiornithidae. It is found from the mid-Atlantic and Gulf Coast of the United States south through most of the New World tropics. This particular ibis is a medium-sized bird with an overall white plumage, bright red-orange down-curved bill and long legs, and black wing tips that are usually only visible in flight. Males are larger and have longer bills than females....
