Subject:A0298 Breakfast Feeding 早餐施食

 

Every morning I went to Sunset View Cemetery.

I scattered rice and peanuts along a cement walkway among tombs, and the walkway has trees on both sides.

I do it this way so that more can have a share and less fighting will result.

 

At first small birds came to eat them, then came woodpeckers and sometimes doves.

Much later, squirrels came. Then occasionally a few wild turkeys came and went.

In last few years some flocks of migrating fowls came to stay in this cemetery for about two months in August and September, and they also join the breakfast bunch.

Only recently the flock of crows, numbered around 100 by my estimation, that stays around in the cemetery, also joined us.

After I have provided the foods, I stood there to have a simple breakfast while watching them eating.

 

This morning I took a few photos.

I caught only the fowls, one squirrel and some crows. I did see woodpeckers and more than one squirrel.

See selected photos attached.

 

每天早上我都去日落景坟场。

我在众坟间的一条水泥小路上,沿路撒米及花生。小路的两侧都有树。

如此分撒以便更多的能分享,而争端可减少。

 

起初只有小鸟来吃,后来啄木鸟也来了,有时还有鸽子。

过了好久才有松鼠来。后来有时会有几隻野火鸡来来去去。

最近几年有些候鸟群会在八、九月间来此坟场停留约两个月;牠们也来参加早餐会。

直到近日,平常在此坟场栖息盘旋的群鸦,数约百余,也参加了。

在施食后,我就站在那儿,边吃简单的早餐,边看着它们进食。

 

今晨我拍了几张照片。

我只拍到候鸟,一只松鼠,还有乌鸦,虽然我有看到啄木鸟及其他松鼠。

附呈选出的几张相片。

 

 

May all beings attain Enlightenment soon!

愿一切众生早日成佛!
