Birds fly like a cloud - level 2
Millions of birds called starlings lived in Israel 20 years ago. Now there are fewer starlings, but people know that the birds are returning.
A video from Israel shows starlings flying together in a big flock. The starlings fly very close together and move in the same directions at the same time. The starlings look like a black cloud. This is called a murmuration.
The birds fly like this to find food and to stay safe from birds of prey.
Difficult words: starling (a little bird), flock (a big group of animals), bird of prey (a big bird that eats smaller birds).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
