食べ方の違い Different Ways Of Eating


同じ食べ物でも、鳥によって食べ方が違います。当然のことなんですが、目撃してウヒャッと思いました。Birds eat same food differently depending on the kind of bird. It’s a silly statement to say it, but I was shocked when I observed it.

こちらはオオアオサギがモグラを飲み込むところです。連写をビデオにしました。(注:ちょっとショックかも)This is a Great Blue Heron swallowing a gopher. I made a video from rapid repeat still shots.

その後、お腹の中で食べやすくなった餌を巣の上に戻し、子供たちはそれを食べるようです。 After the food becomes somewhat softened in her stomach, she spits it out onto the nest. Her chicks will eat it from there.

一方、こちらはアカオノスリです。ご主人が持ってきてくれたモグラを引きちぎって食べていました。子供が生まれたら、小さくちぎった餌を口から口へと与えます。 On the other hand, Red-tailed Hawks eat differently. The female ate a gopher which her husband brought back to her by biting chunks off using her beak. When her chicks are born, she will feed the smaller pieces to her chicks, beak to beak.

こちらがビデオです。1.5 倍速してあります。This is a video. I made it 1.5 times faster than the original speed.

ところで、アカオノスリがもうすぐ産まれると言っていました。 By the way, Red-tailed hawk said that babies are coming real soon.
