世界上飞得最快的海鸟
 

  Frigate birds (1) are not only the fastest, but also the most acrobatic ocean-going (2) birds. Able to fly as fast as 93 miles per hour, they can steal food from other birds while in flight, and snatch flying fish right out of the air (3) .

  Specialized (4) for flight, they are unable to land on the water and are awkward (5) on land. They build crude nests under low bushes (6), and lay only one egg at a time (7).

  The male frigate bird has a bright red pouch (8) on the underside of his neck, which he can inflate (9) to attract females. When inflated, the pouch can be seen for great distance.

  Notes:

  (1) 军舰鸟, 一种热带大海鸟

  (2) 擅长远洋飞行的

  (3) 迅速地捉到跃出水面的鱼

  (4) 擅长

  (5) 笨拙的

  (6) 粗糙的巢穴就筑在矮树丛中

  (7) 一次只下一个蛋

  (8) 袋子

  (9) 膨胀
