巣箱をどうしよう? – What Should I do With the Birdhouse


あ目上がりの夕暮れ、気持ちがいい。MVロックから出る雲は、まるで空をかき回しているよう。 – Below is a sunset view after rain.  It simply gave me a pleasant feeling.  A thick cloud coming out from MV Rock is like an arm swirling things around in the sky.

チトルパの木と枝にかけてある鳥の巣箱。4月11日の夕暮れでした。- This is our birdhouse hanging on a branch of the Chitalpa tree.  I took this photo on April 11th.

その翌日、木の調整をしてもらい、すっきりしたチトルパ。こちらは4月20日の撮影。たった10日の間に若葉がたくさん出てきてくれました。気持ちがいい。 – This is the same tree after being trimmed by a tree service the next day.  I took this photo on April 20th.  It’s only 10 days after the picture above was taken, but you can see so many new leaves have come out.  I can feel the energy from young leaves.

ただ、低い枝がなくなったので、高い枝から巣箱を吊るすことになりました。木を切ったり、場所替えしたりしただけでも鳥たちの反応が心配だったのに、さらに最悪の事態が起こりました。前日の強風で巣箱が落ちてしまったんです!- Because we lost the lower branches, we hung our birdhouse from higher branches.  We worried about the noise from cutting branches and the relocation of the birdhouse, but something even worse happened.  The birdhouse fell from the branch because of wind!  We had a very strong windy night, and the wind was simply way too powerful.

落ちてしまった巣箱をどうしよう。中を開けないまま、ベンチに置いてあります。もうシロハラミソサザイたちは戻ってきてくれないかもしれない。しばらくこのまま様子を見ましょうか。ごめんなさい、ミソサザイさん。- What should we do with the fallen birdhouse?  We placed it on top of a bench without opening it.  Bewick’s wrens may never come back to this birdhouse anymore.  Well, we will monitor it for a while.  I am sorry, wrens!
