A chance to watch an eagle fly

Just after I posted the first essay by Blakeman on hawk aerodynamics I received the following letter. I clicked on the link and can tell you it's pretty amazing. But you probably need a high speed connection to get it.

Hi Marie -

After reading the latest [7/13/05] on your Web site regarding how wings work in flight, I thought you and others might enjoy watching "Tilly," a golden eagle, fly.

Miniature cameras attached to her show exactly how she uses her body when flying.

Here's the Animal Planet link to the videos.
