Little Dalmatian Pelicans - level 1

This news is from a zoo. This zoo is in California. It takes care of two new animals. These animals are Dalmatian Pelicans. Their parents cannot take care of them. People must do it.

People keep the little pelicans in a brooder. They must stay warm. People give them food five times a day. The pelicans can eat without help.

The Dalmatian Pelican is a big bird. It can be 6 feet long (1.8 metres). Its wings can be 9 to 11 feet long (2.7 metres to 3.4 metres).

Difficult words: take care (to help), brooder (a special house for small animals), wing (a bird’s body part which helps it fly).

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