ハイイロチョウヒ – Northern Harrier


ハイイロチョウヒ、今回初めて目撃することができました。これはメスのハイイロチョウヒです。ネックレスが素敵ですね。- It was my first time witnessing this bird, the Northern Harrier. The photo below is of a female. The design around the neck looks pretty, like wearing a neckless.

ベアレイク国立野生動物保護区、葦が茂る草原の上を低空飛行していました。- It was flying low over the wetlands of Bear Lake National Wildlife Refuge.

オスはもっと白灰色らしいんですが、見かけませんでした。- The male is much more gray and white, but we didn’t see it that day.

おっと、夕食の獲物を見つけたんでしょうか。巣穴の様子伺いをしているようです。- Oh, did she find something for her dinner? It was staring at a ground dweller’s hole for a few seconds.

でも次の瞬間には、私と目を合わせて飛んで行ってしまいました。- But it flew away right after it made eye contact with me.

毎日を一生懸命生きている姿にまた感動し、宿に帰りました。自然はいつも私を謙虚にしてくれる。- I was quite moved again by their way of life, which is to simply live their best everyday. Nature always reminds me to be humble.
