The images in this video were taken with a tiny camera mounted on the head of one of our falcons that performs wildlife management at a landfill. Franck Chambon, our contract supervisor, found a way to attach the camera to a modified leather hood. The memory card and the battery were placed on the bird’s back using a custom fitted backpack system.
In this video, Zara the falcon takes you on a visit of the BFI Landfill in Lachenaie, Quebec. You will see how she scrutinizes the area to spot gulls on the site.
Vision being a raptor’s most developed sense, notice how the head stays amazingly stable while the bird is in flight, allowing the falcon to find its prey with precision.
