アナグマの再来訪  Badgers’ return visit

先日のメジロの帰省についで、昨年は2匹で来ていたアナグマ(イタチ科)が14日(木曜日)に子連れ3匹で我が家に現れました。
すばしこく、網戸越しでしたのでカメラで上手には撮れませんでした。
ネット上の説明によれば、アナグマの生態は以下の通りです。
アナグマはその名前のように、土にほった穴をすみかにしています。昼間は穴に姿をひそめていますが、夜になると食料を探しに行動を始めます。アナグマは雑食で、虫や小さい動物のほかに農作物やゴミなども食料としています。
ただ、この家族は夜行性でなく昼間に現れました。
住人の私たちを無視しているのでしょうが、彼らにもそれなりの事情があるのでしょう。
Badgers’ return visit:
Following the white-eyes’ return to us the other day, three badgers (family Weaselidae), two of which visited our garden last year and one of which is their child, showed up again in our garden on Thursday the 14th this year.
They were very fast, and I could not get good pictures of them through the screen door.
According to the description on the net, the ecology of badgers is as follows.
As their name in Japanese suggests, badgers live in burrows in the soil. During the day they hide in their burrows, but at night they begin to search for food. Badgers are omnivores and feed on insects, small animals, crops, and garbage.
However, this family are not nocturnal and appear during the day.
They may ignore us, the residents, but they must have their own reasons.
