2-minute video: An eagle’s amazing skills

 An Amazing Raptor!

An eagle, with a camera installed on its back, was released from the top of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, now the world’s tallest building (about half a mile high, approximately twice the height of the Empire State building), in order to search for its trainer, who was exactly ten blocks from the building.

When the eagle spotted its coach, it plunged downwards for about a minute and a half and then landed on his arm.  Not only can you see some nice images of the city (and the curvature of the earth), but also you can get an idea of how highly developed eagles’ hunting skills are.
