ミソサザイ、無事生まれました! - Wrens are born safely!


裏庭の様子が、少しおかしいと思っていたんです。 – It was not a usual day in our backyard.

なぜか、ミソサザイが一箇所から離れない。こっちを向いては鳴いてみたり、 – Somehow, the Wren didn’t want to fly away from one particular spot.  It looked in my direction and chirped…

左を向いては鳴いてみたり。 – then turned left and chirped in that direction…

そーっと、そーっと、バラの根元を覗いてみると、わ〜っ! – Shhhh, looking into the lower part of a rose bush, ever so quietly, we found them!!!

1、2、3羽もいる!赤ちゃんたちを守っていたんですね。お疲れ様です。 – One, two, and three chicks!  The wren was protecting its babies.  Good job!

まだ眠ってばかりのミソサザイ赤ちゃん。ところで、巣箱の方はどうしちゃったんでしょうねぇ。使ってたとばかり思ってたのに。 – They don’t do much, they simply sleep a lot.  By the way, I wonder why they didn’t use the birdhouse?  I thought they were using it.

バラの低木の奥の方なので、安全そうですが、大丈夫かなぁ?翼の下から赤い肌が見えてるし、蛇とか来てもまだ逃げられないよ。 – It seems somewhat safe down there at the deeper part of the rose bush, but there is no protection for them, although they are well hidden.  Can you see its pink skin under the wings?  No way they can run away from a snake, for example.

明日に続きます。 – To be continued tomorrow.
