Birds fly like a cloud - level 1

Birds fly like a cloud - level 1

This happens in Israel. Starlings live there.  Someone films a lot of them with a camera.

Many starlings fly in the sky. They fly together. They look like a big, black cloud! This is very special.

The birds do this to get food. They also do this to be safe. Other birds cannot eat them when they do this.

Difficult words: starling (a little bird), cloud (a thing in the sky that is made out of water), safe (you will not get hurt).

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