【看英文中國郵報學英文】屏東科技大學鳥類生態研究室在臉書上釋出一組老鷹照片,因為棲架上的相機角度沒調好,拍下許多搞笑的照片,吸引網友瘋傳做梗圖。

A series of hilarious photos of black-winged kite released stirring a hot discussion in Taiwan on social media.

The angle of the camera placed on the “raptor perch” is not right, capturing plenty of hilarious photos of black-winged kites.

研究室在防檢局的支持下,自2017年起開始推廣老鷹棲架,除了吸引老鷹(黑翅鳶)棲息之外,這些老鷹也能幫忙捕鼠,減少農地使用老鼠藥造成環境傷害。

With the assistance of Bureau of Animal and Plant Health Inspection and Quarantine, the laboratory focuses on birds research from National Pingtung University of Science and Technology has begun promoting the use of “raptor perch,” which not only allows the birds to perch but also these raptors help hunt rodent in the farm field. This lets the farmers reduce using rodenticide which is accused of harming the environment.

根據屏科大鳥類生態研究室的臉書,老鷹棲架的原理是利用猛禽喜歡站在制高點的習性。在空曠田區搭高架提供老鷹停棲,若是吸引到專門捕鼠的黑翅鳶,可幫農田降低鼠害。農友不再依賴老鼠藥,也減輕猛禽的中毒危機,形成一個正向循環。

According to the lab’s Facebook, the reason why raptor perch works is that raptors like to stand at a higher point; therefore, installing such perch in a wild filed can attract raptors to stop on it. They are especially targeting to attract black-winged kite who favors hunting the rodent. Less rodenticide is used, fewer raptors are poisoned. Raptor perch launches a positive ecological cycle in the farmland.

另外,屏科大鳥類生態研究室發現紅豆播種時,農夫使用加保扶(俗稱好年冬)製作毒餌,會造成鳥類死亡,間接導致生態食物鏈頂端的老鷹喪命。自2014年起輔導推廣不再使用好年冬栽種出的老鷹紅豆之後,高屏地區的黑鳶族群數量自2014年185隻增加至2018年250隻的數量,全台族群數量約600隻,目前正穩定增加中。

Furthermore, the lab found that farmers like to use carbofuran, one of the most toxic pesticides, when growing red bean. The pesticide results in the death of birds, which also leads to the death of raptors.  The institution, therefore, started to promote “raptor friendly red bean,” which is grown without using carbofuran in 2014. From 2014 to 2018, the number of the black-winged kite in Kaohsiung-Pingtung area has increased from 185 to 250, making the total number of the kite in Taiwan around 600. The number is steadily increasing.
