Where Eagles Dare...

(4 out of 5 stars)
"and hawks, falcons, owls, and vultures, too. This was an interesting program about some of the major raptors and how they utilize various strategies when pursuing their prey. You'll see: the 200-mph dive of the peregrine falcon; how the owl uses almost silent flight and extraordinary hearing to locate targets beneath the snow; how vultures utilize wind currents to soar almost effortlessly in the sky; a harpy eagle change direction and retract its wings while maneuvering through a forest; and more. For some segments of the show a tiny camera is attached to the raptors, so you literally get a "bird's eye" view of the action, including the dive of the peregrine falcon. Pretty cool stuff.
Four stars. If birds of prey are your thing, this is one you probably don't want to miss!"
