共存する Coexist


おはよう! Good morning!

朝8時なのに既に36度を超えています。 Wow, it’s 8 am, already 98F today.

ズアカカンムリウズラのお父さんは、子供達がまだ起きる前から警護していました。Gambel’s quail dad was already up and guarding on the backyard fence even before his family wakes up.

ウズラに餌をあげ始めてから気づいたことがあります。同じ餌を食べに来る他の住人がいることです。 I found something since I have started feeding quails. There are more residents in the backyard coming to eat the same food and drink other than quails.

トウヒ(多分、メグロトウヒチョウ) Abert’s Towhee

サバクハリトカゲ Desert Spiny lizard

ウェスターンウィップテイル (ムチのように長い尾を持っているトカゲ) Westernwhiptail lizard 

トカゲは昆虫類が主食だと思ってたので意外でした。買ってきたウズラフードの中に、トカゲが好きそうなものが入っているんでしょうか。 Lizards eat insects. So, I was surprised that they also eat quail food. I am not sure the ingredients of the quail food from the pet-shop, but there must be something lizards also like to eat included in it.

メチャクチャ暑いので、ウズラもトカゲもぐったり。だから日影もシェアしています。今日も45度になるそうです。水の補給をしっかりして、生き延びてね。 It’s so hot that chicks, as well as lizards, don’t want to move. So they share the shade for resting. It will be 110F again today. Drink plenty of water and live through today!
