2,000 pigeons with lights – level 1

2,000 pigeons with lights – level 1

25-05-2016 15:00

People think that pigeons are not beautiful. Many New Yorkers do not like them. They call them “rats with wings”. One man wants to change people’s opinions.

He trains 2,000 pigeons. He puts a light on each pigeon. The pigeons fly in the air. This is a beautiful show. People come to watch. They can watch the show every weekend evening until June 12th. The show takes place in Brooklyn, New York.

Difficult words: pigeon (many birds of this type live in cities), wing (a bird’s “arm” which makes it fly), opinion (what you think about something).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
