春鳥北返

書本上說﹐鳥類有留鳥與候鳥之分。

據我的觀察﹐有些鳥卻該走未走﹐因為戀棧西雅圖的氣候﹐耽擱了南飛的行程﹐又早早出現在林子裡歡迎春天了。

大雁原該入秋南飛﹐可是我家附近的百樂水閘連接湖水與海水﹐終年魚鳥駐守﹐雁行不斷。春來時﹐幼鳥翅膀漸長﹐牠們總是吵鬧飛掠空際﹐很是好看。

 

這麼一大幫白脖子小鴨也不知道怎麼孵出來的。

 

這兩年﹐水邊的蒼鷺數量比往年減少了﹐不知道為何。不過還是讓人害怕從樹下的鳥糞堆中走過。

後院的餵鳥器終年有不少小鳥來光顧﹐牠們總是把鳥窩藏在松柏的密葉中﹐凍不著也餓不著。有的可以查到名稱﹐有的也只能以「家雀」名之。

 

蜂鳥是去年早秋那些「蜜源花」凋謝後就飛往南方的。今年因為冬季比較長﹐野花都沒開﹐這些趕早的蜂鳥只好在枝頭眺望。

 

靠近水邊的山坡上有一個鷹窩築在高高的松樹頂﹐有時窩空了就能拍到牠們在探索公園的空中翱翔。

 

其實這一塘野鴨子很早就遇見了﹐但是牠們總是蹼蹼地飛﹐速起速落﹐想拍牠們的翅膀並不容易﹐要很有耐心地等。

去年有一隻 robin一直來攻擊我家窗子。真把我嚇壞了。

奇怪!今年沒看見知更鳥在窗外覓食。

可能牠們喜歡的莓果還沒長好。往年院子很熱鬧呢!

先用"純文字版"抄過來,省去一大堆字型顏色的編輯語句。再 copy/paste 一次換成 HTML版,以便放大字體。

還有,英文字可能比中文算的字數少。

Depending on your location, year-round populations of Canada geese in the United States may be “expansion teams” that have relatively recently become established in areas far south of their original territories, losing their migratory habits.


The largest representatives of the Canada goose, Branta canadensis maxima, almost became extinct in the early part of the 20th century. Efforts to re-establish the species succeeded beyond expectations, sometimes leading to overpopulation, according to the Birds of North America Online, a reference work published by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. The overflow from newly overcrowded areas has resulted in a southward expansion of the normal breeding range, with year-round residency.


Normally, Canada geese fly back to nest where they were hatched in the northern reaches of Canada. But these newer populations have no such childhood memories. The Canadian government says geese that still breed in the traditional sub-Arctic areas of Canada continue to migrate south to the relatively balmy United States in the winter, mingling with year-round residents.


To confuse matters further, some migratory Canada geese do not travel as far south in the winter as they used to, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology reports.

These birds have benefited from changes in weather, hunting patterns and agricultural practices that leave more waste grain behind for winter foraging.

我相信。因為有ㄧ年好多大雁飛到我們家附近就留下來過冬了。

密蘇里是農業州,有很多農家在田裡挖池塘(政府免費來幫他們挖)大雁從空中看見會落下來休息

州民到肉舖跟屠夫要來成塊的牛油掛在田裡供雁群打尖

那年密蘇里有個暖冬,大雁就不南行了 大笑 

我是有點奇怪,妳如何能貼這麼長的回應?不是只能寫二百字嗎?

春暖花開, 百鳥爭鳴, 好熱鬧!

這禮拜臺北天氣好轉, 不知哪來的鳥兒, 竟將我們放置陽台上包裹物品用的塑膠袋, 用鳥喙啄走一小塊塑膠片, 猜是用去築巢去了.  真是奇了~

ellen chou 寒雨絆花期(elleninseattle) 於 2019-03-29 07:14 回覆:

是的,不奇怪,我見過鳥巢的內容,尤其大號的鳥類。

小鳥反而比較挑剔,選材精細,工程也毫不馬虎。

不記得養過鳥類,(除了母親曾養過雞鴨)。

很麻煩嗎?

第七張很像finch,我曾經養了五年(牠們壽命只有兩年)。

我把鳥籠掛在櫻花樹下,下雨、冬天或外出過夜才放屋子裡。


ellen chou 寒雨絆花期(elleninseattle) 於 2019-03-28 05:39 回覆:

這些鳥就在後院築窩,數目高時ㄧ窩有七隻小鳥,在樹叢裡玩得很自在

省事。

另外ㄧ邊是知更鳥的地盤,有很多果子可吃

看到你們放置的餵食器
2019/03/27 15:39

我想到年初在紐西蘭住家附近的海邊步道

見到架設在岸邊的木頭架子上,一隻海鳥張開雙翅一動不動

我盯著牠看許久,開始懷疑那是一隻假鳥或死鳥 ....

後來住附近的一位老先生說 :

海鳥潛到水裡捕魚後,需要張開翅膀曬乾,才好再飛 ~~

  

我後來再看到那些木頭架子,都覺得好美 得意

原來有此晾翅ㄧ說

我有ㄧ張照片,在臉書上寫的是:To fly or not to fly, that is the question.
