Sea Eagle Steals Video Camera and Records 70-Mile Flight
By Ben Romans
On Monday, researchers in Australia released a clip of a sea eagle that snatched a small video camera from a study site and recorded its 70-mile getaway flight across the country’s landscape.
Researchers placed the camera along the Margaret River last May to capture images of crocodiles, and when the camera disappeared, they assumed it fell into the current. They only recently reacquired the device after it was found on the banks of the Mary River. When they replayed the footage, they discovered the real culprit.
