飛びながら虫を捕獲する鳥 Ash-Throated Flycatcher


虫を飛びながら捕獲する鳥の仲間です。日本語名はありませんがとりあえず「喉が灰色のフライキャッチャー」としておきます。太陽が上がる頃には用事を済ませ、日中は暑さを凌いでいる様で、あまり見かけません。 また、食べた虫の水分ですませ、水は飲まないそうです。The Ash-throated Flycatcher is, as the name says, a bird that catches insects while it is flying. It’s an early riser and finishes its chores in the early morning. That way it can stay quiet during the day to avoid hot weather. Oh, another important fact about it is that it doesn’t drink water. It takes liquid from the bugs that it consumes.

飛びながら虫を捕獲しているところの写真を撮れればよかったのですが、至難の業です。 I wish I could capture an image of it catching a bug, but it’s nearly impossible with my camera skill.

とりあえず、こんな風に羽を広げて飛んでいるところだけご紹介です。顔は見えませんが、嘴に虫が捕獲されているのを想像しましょう。 These are my best shots for the bird flying. Although we can’t see its face, let’s imagine that it has a bug in its beaks.
