FALCONRY -- Just how sharp are an eagle's eyes?
Good enough to find a rabbit in range land, for sure. But could an eagle pick out a single human standing on a red carpet in a major city?
Check out this video captured by a tiny camera harnessed to the back of an imperial eagle named Darshan. The eagle was launched in Dubai, capital of the United Arab Emirates, from the top of 2,722-feet high Burj Khalifathe, the world's tallest building.
This two-minute clip is an edited version of a flight that lasted five minutes as the eagle captured breathtaking views of the city while taking cues from its trainer on the ground.
The eagle flight was arranged by the nature conservation group Freedom Conservation to draw attention to eagle conservation. This white-tailed eagle has been critically endangered for 50 years, the group says.
