【看CP學英文】寶島台灣孕育無數美麗的動植物,有些動物不論外表、行為都展現十足活力,引人注目。

Taiwan is home and host to many beautiful creatures, big and small, and while some may be harder to spot, others are more conspicuous and flamboyant in appearance and actions.

近日,一名住在台灣的美國人在中山公園散步時,親眼目睹了台灣動物的驚人活力。

A foreign expat from the U.S. recently came across one such creature while walking by the Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Park (中山公園).

Nial Stewart向The China Post分享一張他近日捕捉的照片,只見照片中,一隻美麗的夜鷺嘴裡叼著一條血鸚鵡魚,準備大啖美食。

According to Nial Stewart, he happened to capture the moment a beautiful black-crowned night heron decided to try and turn a blood parrot cichlid into its meal of the day.

然而,這隻夜鷺多次嘗試要吞下這隻鮮豔的大魚,卻因為太大吞不下去,最後決定放棄這道美食。

However, it soon found out that the brightly-colored fish was too big for it and abandoned it after several attempts to devour it.

Nial續道,另一隻更大的鳥突然飛過來搶食,但最後仍宣告棄權,只留下奄奄一息的魚,隨後也沒有挑戰者成功享用這美味大餐。

Stewart added that another, larger contender quickly arrived to try their hand at it, but also left in defeat, rendering the poor fish dead, with no one to appreciate it.

當Nial將這張生動的照片分享在論壇Reddit上,旋即獲得廣大迴響,許多網友回應表示,這隻鳥僅靠著吞下一隻魚,就成為了大明星。

The stunning photo quickly garnered attention after Stewart shared it on Reddit, with some commenting that by merely “trying” to swallow a fish, the bird has found a unique way to rise to fame.

另外,有網友對於魚兒的大小感到疑惑,坦言「我的小腦袋瓜以為牠是隻金魚。」

Some were also confused by the size of the fish with one Reddit user admitting, “my small brain thought it was a goldfish.”

事實上,金魚僅有血鸚鵡魚的四分之一大。

In reality, a goldfish is about four times smaller than a blood parrot cichlid.

Nial表示,夜鷺在市區非常常見,大多棲息於有魚的水池旁,像是大安森林公園、國父紀念館、中正紀念堂。下次,在這些景點附近散步時,不妨好好留意四周,說不定夜鷺就在你旁邊!

According to Stewart, the bird can be easily spotted in the city but only by water with fish, so are often seen near Da’an Forest Park, Sun Yat-sen and Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Park.

Interested parties can keep their eyes peeled next time they visit these places in Taipei!
