Xbee modules plugged in to the Mayfly’s Bee headers communicate directly with the ATmega1284P processor’s secondary hardware serial port. So if you want to see any Bee traffic on your serial monitor, you’ll need to have a sketch running on the Mayfly that captures anything heard on “Serial1” and then print it to the monitor via Serial.

Likewise, if you want the Mayfly to transmit something via the Bee, you have to do that via “Serial1”.
