It was very bird-y day yesterday. I had time to go for a longer midday walk than usually, all the way to to mall park pond, the home of a flock of ducks. There is about dozen of them and we shall see bunch of little ducklings soon from now I guess. This couple was napping peacefully when i got there ...
Vcerejsek byl ptaci den. Mela jsem v poledne cas na delsi prochazku nez obvykle, dosla jsem az k rybnicku v parku na promenade. Bydli tam hejno kacek, tak deset dvanact, a myslim ze brzy budou i kacatka. Tenhle parek si zrovna daval odpoleniho slofika, a tahle zase dostala chut na neco k snedku. Ty kacky se vubec neboji pozornosti, dokonce pro me i pozovaly :)
and this one was ready for some snack :). The ducks there are not scared of human attention at all, they would pose for me to make sure i got them right.
Than I have seen the three little birds (sparrows?) sitting on the tip of hedge bush, just like in the song ...
all puffed up since the weather was still on the gloomy side. I bet they are much happier today since the sun finally appeared (we had a very rainy weekend, there is some record water flow on Potomac and Anacostia, as I heard on the morning NPR).
A pak jsem videla tri male vrabcaky (?) na spicce ziveho plotu, jako v te pisnicce, byli celi nacepyreni, trochu poprchalo. Vsadim se ze dneska je jim veseleji, konecne se ukazalo slunicko (po dlouhem dstivem vikendu, rano jsem v radiu slysela neco o velke vode na Potomacu a Anacostii)
Upon my arrival home, I finally met one of the neighbor's chicken, walking cheerfully in our yard;
and it was a fine white exemplar. We keep hearing the rooster in the morning, for sometime now, as a "warm" reminder of the Kuai vacations. As W have put it, now we are officially villagers!
No a kdyz jsem dojela domu, potkala jsem sousedovic slipku, vesele si vykracujici na nasi predzahradce; a ze to byl pekny bily exemplar. Uz nejaky cas slychavame po ranu kohouta, je to takova "mila" pripominka dovolene na Kuai. Jak poznamenal W., jsme ted oficialne vesnicani!
