A Fort Worth Falconer Straps a Camera to His Bird, Which Then Kills a Duck in Midair

If you're not one for delayed gratification, skip to the 2:45 mark. That'll take you past the jolting takeoff and soaring panoramas of rural North Texas and straight to the money shot, in which you'll discover what it's like to be a falcon killing a duck in midair.

The video was posted to YouTube by Fort Worth falconer Roger Crandall, who decided to strap a camera to one of his birds of prey, Dora. It offers a perspective that ground-based lifeforms don't typically get to enjoy, along with wordless testimony for Crandall's business Fal-Tech Bird Control, which gets rid of nuisance birds like grackles or starlings the natural way.
