I sure wouldn't want to try to strap a video rig onto an eagle that didn't want a video rig strapped on.

You'd need about 300 stitches before you could even say "Owwww!"

I was only expecting one on an eagle bagging mission-- hard to grab two at once. The sibling put a talon scratch down the entire length of my face!

Chilling in the nest waiting to haul them back up after the biologist put tracking radios on them.

That, my friends, is bitchen.

However, technically probably it is Go-Am since I bet the eagle doesn't get any royalties.

Send that bird to the Minarets to look for Matt Greene.

No bird's eye view comments?

EDIT:

Didn't catch it the first couple runs through, but people show up at :22 and 1:17. Bird's shadow at :56.

What an amazing clip. Sure wish it was longer. I've been to that train station a couple of times - Montenvers - above the mer de glace. Below the Dru. Gorgeous place & a great hike from Cham.

Wow, just wow.

I like seeing the shadow a couple times and seeing the eagle look around occasionally. But what is up with the clanking sounds in the soundtrack?

Super-cool video. I'm a little surprised there aren't more of these vids. Go-Pro's have been around for a few years now and falconry has been around for thousands of years.

Watching trained birds of prey do their thing is pretty incredible.

Thanks for posting this, it was a fun ride.
