The balcony observer's 343th report- Be a tree frog today? (Mulberry, Part 11) 你今天當樹蛙嗎? 桑葚

by Tsao T-F July. 20, 2021 257 views

A tree frog is any species of frog that spends a major portion of its lifespan in trees, known as an arboreal state. I have never encountered any frogs on the balcony. But today it seems that a tree frog has arrived.

樹蛙即是樹棲的蛙,指其生命中大部分時間棲息在樹上。我在陽台從來沒遇過任何蛙。但是今天似乎來了一隻樹蛙。

A Light-vented Bulbul (Pycnonotus sinensis) called A-Shou was holding a red mulberry in the "Central Theater" on my balcony in Taichung, Taiwan. 一隻叫阿瘦的白頭翁叼著紅色的桑葚在我陽台上的”中央劇場”。

A-Shou doesn't want to be a bird today. Instead, he wanted to be a frog. 阿瘦今天不想當一隻鳥。相反的,他想當一隻青蛙。

His belly looks round and big. 他的肚子看起來又圓又大的。

More importantly, I don't understand why his legs are spread out. 更重要的是,我不懂他的兩腿為什麼要擺開開的。

A-Shou's figure seems completely out of shape. 阿瘦的身材似乎完全走樣了。

Do you know why I named him "A-Shou" before? 你知道為什麼我之前要幫他取名”阿瘦”嗎?

Because he looked "thin" before. 因為他以前看起來是”瘦瘦”的。

Note: The word "瘦" is similar to the sound of "Shou", meaning skinny or thin.

A-Shou, I think you must have eaten too much mulberry fruit recently. 阿瘦,我覺得你一定是最近吃太多桑葚果子了。
