Animales de playa regresan por cuarentena

Mientras los humanos permanecen encerrados algunos animales de playa regresan por cuarentena a  sus espacios naturales donde suelen vivir.

Delfines, aves y mantarrayas regresan a la zona hotelera de Holbox, en México, debido a cuarentena, la cual esta bordeada por la Reserva Natural Protegida.

El silencio, a falta de turistas, ha hecho más notorio el canto de las aves por todas las calles ya que, esta isla, en el estado de Quintana Roo.

Pero no son las únicas especies que han estado apareciendo en el país, pájaros cantando, jabalíes caminando por la ciudad y delfines de regreso en las costas.

El confinamiento ha dado vía libre a los animales, que disfrutan de la calma, y los humanos se toman más tiempo para observar la naturaleza.

Photo by David Chancellor @chancellordavid | I’d been told that every morning millions of sandgrouse come to a small patch of water in a dry riverbed in northern Kenya to collect water and drink. I remember walking down to this patch of water and standing there looking at the sky. Not a sign; absolutely nothing. Not even a discarded feather. I looked at the ranger out of the corner of my eye, and he smiled and waved a wobbly finger at the sky. “They’ll come at dawn,” he said. Relying on their camouflage, they nest in particularly open areas, often 75 to 100 kilometers (50 to 60 miles) from water. The monogamous male and female share incubation duties and conceal their eggs with their own cryptic bodies. Because of the hot nature of their habitats, sandgrouse have developed some unique traits. They have densely packed feathers and thickened skin and scales on their feet. Most uniquely, the feathers on the belly of the male bird are modified for collecting and retaining water. The birds visit waterholes at sunrise to drink, weaving through the trees to escape attention until they alight at the water's edge. Here, the male will wade into the water and, raising the feathers on his upper belly, will allow them to soak up water in a process known as belly wetting. These belly feathers are then flattened again before he leaves to return to the nest. Sandgrouse chicks drink the water directly off their father’s feathers. Without the water they’d be dead within a day—or less. So. We built a hideout of reeds and branches, and I slept in it. Just before sunrise I was woken from my slumber by what sounded like a jet aircraft engine starting up next to me. I slowly pulled apart the leaves and this is what I saw. The entire thing lasted about 10 minutes, if that, and then back to silence. Still not a feather in sight. Needless to say, I slept there the next night too. Melako Conservancy, northern Kenya.

En los primeros días del confinamiento por el coronavirus, los habitantes de las grandes ciudades descubrieron el canto de los pájaros.

Confinados en sus casas, las personas tienen más tiempo para observar la naturaleza desde sus ventanas o jardines.

Sin embargo, el confinamiento de los humanos es una mala noticia para los animales que están acostumbradas a alimentarse de su basura.
