Parrot Takes GoPro – level 1

30-12-2022 07:00

In New Zealand, a family is hiking on a long trail. They stop at a camp. Parrots fly around them. They put their camera outside. They record the parrots. One parrot steals the camera.

The camera records the bird flying. Then it records the bird biting it. The bird takes some of it apart. The bird flies away when the family finds the camera. The camera is still recording.

This parrot is famous. It likes to steal things. It likes to learn about things. Sometimes it steals wallets, jewelry, lunches, and car parts.

Difficult words: parrot (a colorful bird), record (to film or make a video), steal (to take someone’s thing).

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