Camera on a bird - level 2
A great video, which was taken in Belgium in 2011, emerged. It was taken by a camera which was fixed on a falcon’s back.
Scientists used the video to study falcons. The scientists were interested in the physics of flight while the birds hunt. The video revealed to scientists that the birds use a kind of “motion camouflaging”, as they fly to catch their dinners.
The birds also use their wide field of vision to keep their eyes fixed on their prey.
Difficult words: falcon (big bird which catches smaller birds), camouflage (hide), prey (animal which is killed and eaten by another animal).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
