I saw an episode of Nature last week called "Raptor Force." In the
episode they talked a lot about the raptors — large birds of prey —
and their specialized skills.

And, I guess simply because they thought it would be totally cool to do
it, they decided to mount a small, lightweight camera on the back of a
Peregrine falcon, perhaps nature's greatest aviator, to get an idea of
what it would be like to fly like a bird.

And they were right. It was very, very cool.

"No one ever said it would be easy to operate a
tiny television station from the back of a bird."

Gee, ya think?
