THE EYES OF AN EAGLE
This is a video of an eagle's flight from the top of the world's tallest
building to his handler below. The eagle was fitted with a camera and released
from the top of the 2,715 foot Burj Khalifa building in Dubai.
The eagle had no idea where the tiny speck of land was that his handler was
standing on or what it looked like among all of the other islands and buildings
Somewhere along the way, the eagle actually picks out and recognizes his
trainer from among all of the other objects, people, etc.
You can see him looking, looking, looking for his trainer, who is invisible to
the human eye and the camera, and then once he spots him, he folds his wings
and drops like a bullet straight to his trainer.
What is surprising is not only how efficiently the eagle spots his trainer from
that altitude, but how smooth its flight is, with no camera shake whatsoever,
even when it goes into a power dive.
May we all have the eyes of an eagle.
