I loved the video as well, but I would also like to see the working behind the scenes as to how did they get this bird, how was he chosen, trained, and handled for the fitting of the camera. those the simple tricks the circus animals are trained to do, look great to the public, but the training to the animal is actually very cruel. the horses in your rodeos, their riders train them with a method called "tying a horse’s head around", which is where the owner takes the bridle and bit, turns the horse heads so he's looking backwards toward his rump. and ties the bridal to the saddle and leaves the horse tied up that way for hours with the bit biting into his lip. this is to train the horse to turn quickly at the slight pull on the reins
my point being, what looks great, and innocent on the surface may not be what is going on behind the curtain

It's part of the PBS show Earthflight. I loved this series.

Don't you just wish that, at certain times, you could do exactly what this eagle does?
In fact, I often dream I can fly, recognizing that a therapist may suggest that I'm trying to escape something or someone.
'DUH! Ya think', as Gibbs (Mark Harmon) would say.

it´s a good video and a good camera, of course, but to use an eagle to work for entertain some stupid ones not able to imagine how the world looks from upstairs is a bit more than infantile.

Your sentence:
"This amazing perspective will give you a completely new view of nature — and the world."

No border, no ethical responsibility for amusement and earning money with all the greed is impossible, is not everybody´s taste. Thank god.

TY
