Puppet Feeds Baby Bird – level 2

01-11-2021 15:00

At a zoo in Prague, zookeepers use a puppet to feed an endangered baby magpie.

The puppet teaches the baby how to have its own babies when it grows up. The puppet is not a perfect imitation of an adult magpie, but the baby responds to it.

This type of magpie is one of the most endangered birds on Earth, as fewer than 50 live in the wild.

Difficult words: endangered (at risk of extinction – dying out), magpie (a bird that is related to a crow), a perfect imitation (something that looks or acts exactly like something else).

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