Falcon's are among the most dangerous birds of prey. They are the fastest creatures on Earth recording diving speeds of 200 mph, and they also have some of the best eyesight of any other competing birds. Plus, when it comes time to eat, their prey never seems to know what hit him as they always strike from above.
Photographer Eddy De Mol got the brilliant idea of strapping a camera to the heads of these creatures and watching them in action as they help control the crow population by swooping from above and taking them out of the air.
Physicist Suzanne Amador Kane explains in the YouTube description how falcons hunt their prey, combining both speed and their eyesight.
Suzanne Amador Kane (Haverford College), working with falconers across the globe, has discovered that falcons pursue prey by keeping the image of the prey in the same place on their retina during the pursuit as they close in.
Great ground-breaking footage. It's amazing how small cameras are being used in such a way. I genuinely got some Ace Combat 04 dogfight flashbacks watching it. During the extended chase on a single crow, I got the urge to barrage him with a couple dozen missiles, but falcons have not found out how to use the technology… yet.
