Fly Like An Eagle?

Did you happen to see this amazing video on the news or your social media feed?

Darshan the Eagle has set a new world record in a breathtaking mini-camera video that shows highest recorded bird flight from the tallest building in the world – Dubai’s Burj Khalifa – in an effort to bring awareness to eagle conservation.

I love that when he’s realised he just glides around the building looking down and when he spots his trainer in the orange square below and wearing and orange fleece,  he just pulls his wings in and accelerates to the ground at amazing speed as you’ll hear in the change of wind-noise.

Such an amazing creature.
