Eagle Flight

Do you need a little lift today?

Well, what if I were to tell you that I could lend you a pair of wings


that would carry you right up over the breathtaking landscape of the French Alps?

Too good to be true?

Just watch:

Go ahead.

Watch it again

(and again).


Is it “real”?

I can’t say for sure, but it convinces me that flying on the back of an eagle feels fabulous.

The footage, uploaded by YouTube user Srachi, was recorded using an action camera attached to the eagle’s back (presumably placed there by a fellow versed in falconry). According to the video’s description, the flight took place near Chamonix-Mont-Blanc in southeastern France.

    Oh, la,la!! What a ride that was!!! Eagles in flight are just breathtaking to watch. We saw the most beautiful Sea Eagles in Norway in some of the fjords. It is amazing to me that they can spot prey from so high up!
