Snowy owl in Montreal - level 2

Snowy owl in Montreal - level 2

14-01-2016 15:00

A traffic camera in Montreal filmed a snowy owl. Many people liked and shared the video on Facebook.

The owl is beautiful, and it is rare to film a snowy owl. The owls inhabit places where people don’t live. However, the birds sometimes die in collisions with cars and airplanes.

The snowy owl is an official symbol of Quebec, and Canada protects it from hunters.

Difficult words: inhabit (to live in), collision (the situation when something hits another thing), hunter (a person who hunts – kills animals).

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