Hello, my name is Auntie Arlene. I will share with you different stories from my life. Some of them are quite amazing. My life has been rich with adventures. I have traveled this road for a very long time. It all began in a little house in the countryside. But the path has taken me to far away places. Will you join me on this journey? You will learn a lot about other people and places around this world. Are you ready? It will be a fun trip. So let's get started. [mp3]


鸟儿饿了 Taking Turns

[mp3]


My favorite spot to sit is on our little screened porch. I watch the hummingbird feeder that I have filled with sugar water. Many times throughout the day, the hummingbirds will arrive to get nourishment as they put their long pointed beaks into the red tube. They love bright colors of red and orange in flowers and so they drink as if this is just another blossom full of nectar.


Only one bird can feed at a time, so I watch as a bird sits on a little branch of a tree nearby and waits its turn. However, there is a problem because something else wants to share the food. Yes, there is a wasp clinging to the little red tip and the hummingbird is very much afraid of wasps. That little wasp has been there for quite a long time and seems to linger forever. The hummingbird sits patiently on the little branch until the wasp flies away. Then, it is his turn to drink the sugar water.


Sometimes they will fly swiftly into our yard, eager to get some food, but if the wasp is there, they will hover in the air like a helicopter and then finally stop on the branch to wait. It is interesting to note that even a tiny bird can be stung by a wasp. I really don't blame them for keeping a distance. It seems a sensible thing to do.


I wonder if we have that much patience if we have to stand in line at the store waiting for other customers to make their purchase so we can buy our items and be on our way? It is best to be polite because rudeness is never a good thing.


Vocabulary:
Nourishment - Food that helps with one's health or growth.
Hover - To stay suspended or flutter in the air near one place.
