Read the passage and answer the questions.

An Eagle And A Crow

One day, a hungry crow was sitting on a tree in a pasture crying,

"Caw! I've had nothing to eat since this morning. I'm starved. Caw!"

Suddenly a huge eagle swooped down.

Ignoring the terrified crow, the eagle snatched up a lamb with his

powerful claws and flew high into the sky.

The crow's mouth started to water. "How I envy him, being able to

stuff himself with an entire lamb!" The crow wished he could have a lamb

too. "Well, I'm a bird, just like an eagle. I should be able to get a lamb

myself," he said and he flew up above the pasture to select one.
