アメリカツリスガラの巣作り、その1 – Verdin Nest Making (Part 1)


鳥の観察をするようになって、気づいたこと。 – I had an epiphany since I started observing birds.

ただ生きる。それだけで尊い! – Just live, it’s precious by itself!

目下アメリカツリスガラたちは巣作りの真っ最中。以下の写真は裏庭の木に作られつつある彼らの巣です。身の丈以上もある枝やフワフラしたものを巣に運んでいます。 – Now, Verdin are in the middle of making nests.  The pictures below are Verdins working hard, bringing twigs longer than themselves, and bringing fluffy stuff to the future nest.

でも、先週、強い風の日があったので心配していたんですよね。案の定、風でせっかく集めた枝が垂れ下がってしまいました。ここ数日、姿を見ません。諦めちゃったのかな。胸が痛みます。 – But a week ago, we had a very windy night.  I worried about the nest, and sure enough, the bundle of twigs fell apart with half hanging from the tree.  I haven’t seen the Verdin pair since then.  I wonder if they have given it up.  My heart aches.

多くの苦難を乗り越えて巣が作られて行くんですね。ここがダメならきっとどこかで彼らは巣作りをしているはず。もう少し様子を見ましょうか。 – Going through many hardships, they will, make their nest somewhere, even if it’s not here anymore.  I will observe a little longer.
