SETTING NEST BOX FOR JAPANESE TITS (シジュウカラの巣箱設置)


Today I cleaned and set two nest boxes for Japanese tits. 
It was warm (Max temperature 14.9 C) and a strong wind blew from the south. 
The first strong south winds of the year are called "Haru Ichban" in Japan. 
Haru means spring, and Ichiban means the first one, 
and it is thought that it's a signal of the beginning of spring.  




 今日はシジュウカラの巣箱を洗って取り付けました。
最高気温は14.9度で強い南風が吹きました。
一年で最初の強い南風は「春一番」と呼ばれ、
春が近づいていることを知らせます。


The traditional one was set on the cherry beside the gazebo.

Another blue diamond-shape one is on the Japanese maple behind the shed with fake windows.  


 もう一方の青い巣箱はニセの窓のある物置の後ろの色は紅葉の木に


They can be seen from the house window, however, 
leaves will hide them in spring. 


家の窓から二つとも見えますが、
春には葉が隠してしまいそうです。
