アメリカツリスガラの巣作り、その2 – Verdin Nest Making (Part 2)


青空を背に受けて、今日も元気なアメリカツリスガラ。 – Verdin is even more cheerful with blue sky today.

郵便受けの近くで見つけたアメリカツリスガラの巣。結構大きいフカフカを持ってきました。 – I found their nest near the mail box.  A verdin brought a big chunk of some fluffy thing.

体制を整えました。 – Verdin repositioned for the next move.

それっ! –  Up you go!

今度は長い枝ですね。 – This time he brought a long twig.

上手に運べるんですね。 – Wow, I am impressed the way he can carry it.

オスだけが巣作りをすると、どこかで読んだ記憶があるんですが、やっぱり夫婦で作るんですね。 – I didn’t expect to see this because I have read somewhere that only the male Verdin makes the nest.  But that was wrong.  Both verdins participate in building the nest.

二羽で作る方が速いもんね。  – It’s so much faster needless to say.

この巣の完成は近そうです。 – It looks like the completion of the nest is near.
