This is the last thing a smaller bird sees when it falls into the clutches of an eagle.

Drones are popular. They let us see things from a different perspective. An Australian recorder took his drone off the ground like many times before and was enjoying the recording. But he could never have expected the outcome that followed. An eagle appeared out of nowhere, flew towards the drone and hit it with its talons strong enough to make it crash to the ground. Despite the rough landing, the camera kept on recording, but the owner tells us that the drone needed some attention before it was able to take off again.

The video was posted on YouTube by a Melbourne Aerial Video user, who let the viewers know that the eagle is okay. His advice to all users is not to fly their drones in areas where birds are flying. The birds could see it as a potential threat and attack it, which could cost you a lot of money and the bird its life. So if you spot a bird nearby while your drone is in the air, land it as soon as possible.
