SYDNEY (AP) - A brazen bird snatched a video camera that was recording crocodiles in northwest Australia and captured fascinating footage of its 110-kilometer (70-mile) journey across the country's remote landscape.
Wildlife rangers in Western Australia's Kimberly region released video on Monday that reveals the sea eagle's caper. The bird's flapping wings can be seen as it grabs the device and takes off, and the eagle later poses for a selfie, poking its face into the camera lens.
Rangers set up the motion-sensor camera along the Margaret River in May, hoping to record images of crocodiles. The camera, which is about 10 to 15 centimeters (4 to 6 inches) long and 5 centimeters (2 inches) wide, disappeared soon after and the rangers figured it had fallen into the water.
The rangers recently found out that the device had been found near the Mary River, about 110 kilometers (70 miles) away, ranger Roneil Skeen told the Australian Broadcasting Corp. When they examined the video inside, the real culprit was revealed.
The rangers plan to bolt down their cameras from now on, Skeen said.Click here for more news on AOL.com
That's a birds eye view. Sorry couldn't help myself.
So where's this amazing video? I did manage to open a commercial IMMEDIATELY, but nothing beyond that. More incompetence from AOL/Huff.
Oh good, I thought it was just me!!!So where is the video?
Love the birds! Note to Morning Rush, though: the leadin music is awful, and why do all your news anchors look like someone socked them in the eyes? Tone down the paint, pleez, and the cheap clothes!
They (the news casters and the weather people) never get it that we get NOTHING out of the screen being filled with THEM.... What a waste of a good story...
Amen!!! Can't figure out why a story about an incredible video hardly shows any of the video.
Seagull? Come on, AOL - do a little research. It's an eagle!http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/03/world/asia/where-eagles-dare-the-eagles-cut.html?_r=0
A sea Eagle is also called an offspray and are quite asstonishingly beautiful. As large as a bald eagle and is a protected species. The nest size alone, will amaze people. I saw one nest that was 7 feet across..
I love this bird. (Almost as much as the squirrel who photobombed that couple and got famous a few years back.) Best selfie I've ever seen - and not a Kardashian in site!
So where's the video???? I want to see the bird flight!
Right ? Thank you !
I think it might be on You Tube, but I'm not sure.
I would have liked to have seen the video that was captured when the eagle took the camera.
I, likewise. Watching a news report of a news report is a waste of our time.
