Birds in a Christmas Tree – level 2

14-12-2016 15:00

A mother bird built a nest and lay two small eggs deep in a tree. A Brazilian family was very surprised when two birds hatched in that same tree, their Christmas tree.

As people decorated the tree, mother bird continued to work on the nest. The family left the doors and windows of the house open, so the birds can come and go. It will not be long until the young birds fly the nest.

Difficult words: hatch (come out of an egg), decorate (put nice things on something), fly the nest (leave the nest when old enough).

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