鹛与鹛

爱德华·威尔逊说,在关键时刻获取丰富的实践经验,而非系统知识,才是造就博物学家的重要因素。我想他并不是在驳斥系统学习,而是在提醒我们要注重观察。

奇怪的是,我对加新的执念似乎在慢慢消退。好像在热带雨林中行走,加新与否已经不甚要紧,反而是观察鸟类和自然环境的互动,成为了一件更令我感兴趣的事情。几只方尾鹟在昏暗的林间乱窜,有一只突然停在我面前的横枝上,开始梳理起自己左翼上的飞羽。它梳理的非常仔细,从三级飞羽开始,再是二级飞羽,最后到初级飞羽,一根接着一根,毫不含糊。末了,它舒展了一下身子,钝钝的方形尾羽在我面展开。一只纹背捕蛛鸟在林冠以下跳跃,雨林里繁茂的枝叶让我很难追踪它的轨迹。相较于长嘴捕蛛鸟,纹背捕蛛鸟似乎喜欢在更高的地方活动。

纹胸巨鹛,把它想成版纳的淡眉雀鹛更有代入感。虽然不如淡眉雀鹛那样吵闹,但却是一样活跃乱动,一样难以拍好。纹胸巨鹛对丰满多汁的鳞翅目昆虫有特别的偏爱,在悬吊着的枯叶里啄取,不多时就扯开叶团,从里面挑出一只松毛虫来,就像我们撕开包装拿出一颗软糖一样。

黑头穗鹛是意想不到的收获。同样的,我看到它在阿宽蕉/小果野蕉的枯巴蕉叶聚成的串上跳来跳去,寻找枯叶中藏匿的昆虫。然而枯败的芭蕉叶难以立足,我甚至看到它飞到枯叶上然后又滑下去的样子。于是它会选择站在旁边其他植物的枝条上,向着枯叶的内部窥探。

光线渐暗,一只白喉冠鹎跳到我头顶歇息,放松地打了一个哈欠。
