Starlings in Denmark – level 1

18-10-2016 15:00

This news is from Denmark. Starlings flock together every autumn there. They look for rest and food. Then they go south in the winter.

Hundreds of thousands of birds move in formations. They attract people who watch them. A hundred thousand people watch them every year.

There are so many starlings that they block the sun. People call this Black Sun. It is the biggest Danish nature event.

Difficult words:  starling  (a small bird), flock (come together), attract (if something attracts you, you like it and want to see it).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
