Finally the dolphins mostly ignore Kathleen.
After about two minutes into the first entry today, the dolphins remembered that Kathleen with her green MVA3 was no fun. She would not interact with them! Our goal was mostly achieved with the dolphins not paying the camera or Kathleen much attention. Well, almost … Maury & Ronnie would periodically watch Kathleen from about 1 m behind her.
There was much play behavior – JAWing, whistling, echolocation chases and rubbing behavior – among the young dolphins today. Neat to watch.
The new MVA3 (mobile video/acoustic system) was working GREAT!! Very clean recordings both video and sound wise. Our signal to noise ratio was awesome.
