Eagle eye!!!


The Eyes of Eagles

         An eagle's flight from the top of the world's tallest building to his handler below. An eagle was fitted with a camera  and released from the top of the 2,715 foot Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai.

The eagle has no idea where the tiny speck of land was that his handler is standing on or what it looked like among all of the other islands and buildings and people. Somehow from that altitude, the eagle actually picks out and recognizes the trainer from all of the other objects, people, etc. You can see him looking, looking, looking for the trainer, completely invisible to a human eye and the camera, then fold his/her wings and then drops like a bullet straight to that trainer… very cool.

What surprised the experts 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.


Well the link doesn’t seem to be working properly… but it is worth a copy and paste.

That is pretty amazing , thanks for sharing

I like to share! :lol:

That was cool. You can tell the moment when the eagle spots him.

That’s really awesome, thanks!

You can see his head moving rapidly while he is searching, but there is a spot in the clip where you can see his eye very rapidly searching in addition to the head movements.

There is also a spot in the video where you can see the huge RED outline that the handler is standing in, so, that’s kinda cheating, IMO. -X

Starting at the 1:40 mark… https://youtu.be/6g95E4VSfj0?t=1m40s

I noticed that too, but still it is amazing


Thanks. That was worth watching.

Nice, Dave!
