Earlier this year, an eagle snatched a wildlife camera from the banks of Australia’s Kimberley Margaret River. The camera was retrieved several weeks later and 70 miles away. This surprised the rangers, who assumed that the camera (intended to record crocodiles) had just fallen into the water. Rangers compiled clips from the recovered footage of the camera’s take-off and flight (listen to the eagle’s wings beating), landing, and then the eagle’s curious pecks at the lens.
