Hello! Did you ever want to ride on the back of an eagle like a non-creepy version of Neverending Story? Today’s your lucky day:
(I’m sure PETA loves that someone strapped a camera to the back of a bird.)
The eagle cam was taken in the Chamonix Valley, specifically near Mer De Glace, France’s biggest glacier. There’s gorgeous scenery, wind-ruffled feathers, and an excuse to sing that obnoxiously catchy Steve Miller song. What more could you want? Other than seeing the eagle poop on somebody’s head.
Go pro on a soaring eagle, Kottke.
