My wife just showed me a photo of an eagle grabbing a drone in its talons.  I 
think he must have been affected by it.

Also about a week ago a very high speed drone was operating in the park near 
our place at speeds of well over 100 km/hr.  I found a dying Crested Pigeon 
with head wounds nearby - though I cannot prove that the drone caused the 
injuries, I think we need to look more closely at their effect on birds before 
using them.

Cheers  Mike
