I have heard of FW jellyfish but never seen them, and I'm curious...
I saw a tankful of saltwater jellies at an aquarium on the Oregon coast
that was stunning--and I've heard they were popular in Japan(?) in
Could I ask where your friend's pond was? (general area)   Where do
you think the birds were bringing them from, and how, and what birds?
I'm not doubting you--just curious.  And I would love to find some.
And I don't think you're crazy...
