チャイロコツグミ Hermit Thrush


「美しい鳴き声のチャイロコツグミさん、どうぞ歌をお願いします。」 “Mr. Hermit Thrush, please sing a song with your gorgeous voice.”

「あら、歌ってくださらないんですか?」 “What happened? Don’t you want to sing?”

「もう歌ってます。こんな風に大きく嘴を開けて歌うこともあるけど、口をあまり開けない方が綺麗な音が出るんですよ。」 “I am singing already. I open my beak wide open sometimes, but often, I don’t open my beak so much. My beautiful voice comes out better this way.”

「それは大変失礼しました。ところで、今歌ってますか?」 “I see. Sorry about that. By the way, are you singing now?”

「今、休憩中。」 “I am resting now.”

「なんか、紛らわしいですね。口を開ける時は、歌う時だけにしていただけるとありがたい。」 “Umm, it’s quite confusing. It’s much easier for me to know that you open your beak only when you sing.”

「今、歌ってますよねぇ?」「・・・」 “You are singing right now, right?” “. . . “
