春の別荘 – Second House for Spring


これが春の別荘です。- This is the second house for Spring.

ここで産卵予定のシロハラミソサザイのご夫婦です。 – This is the Bewick’s wren pair who decided to lay their eggs here.

「そう、それそれ、早く持って来て!」と奥さん。”Yes, that’s it.  Bring it up here quick!” said the wife.

「フカフカ綿毛を見つけるのは、結構大変なのわかってくれてるのかなぁ。」と、ご主人。- “I am not sure if she knows how hard it is to find fluffy fuzz-balls like this.” said the husband.

「はい、これでいい?」 – “Does this work?”

「産卵準備は本当に大変。もう時間あまりないの。」と、奥さん。”Nest making is a huge project for us.  We don’t have much time left.” said the wife to me.

「それは大変。ストレス溜まっていそうですね。顔の周りや、口の中まで綿毛が付いてますよ。少し休む時間があるといいですね。」と、私。- “That sounds tough.  You look quite stressed.  A few strings of fuzz are around your face and inside your mouth.  I hope you have time to rest a little.”
