110814 It was very foggy in Shakopee this morning. But we joined George and Anne for their birding walk at Louisville Swamp Unit, Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge. During the walk, we spotted bald eagles, cormorants, Baltimore orioles, phoebes, a solitary sandpiper, a spotted sandpiper, male kingfishers, etc. We saw one kingfisher diving into water to catch a fish for the first time.

枯れ木の一番上で、魚を狙っていたKingfisher (
日本のカワセミの一種) が、突然、空中から飛び込み魚を素早く捕らえ、また元の枯れ木の上に戻り、そこで、魚を食べたのを初めて見ました。

We hear shorebirds begin to migrate south in July. It makes sense because we spotted a solitary sandpiper, one of shorebirds on today's walk. Solitary Sandpipers spend the hot summer months in Canada or Alaska. 渡り鳥の季節は、始まっています:Shorebird の南への渡りは、7月に始まると聞いています。Shorebird のsolitary sandpiper をMinneapolis/St. Paulの近郊にあるLouisville Swamp Unit で見ました(夏は、もっと北に住みます)ので、彼らが南へ渡り始めたのを確認しました。
