See What a Falcon Sees as It Swoops In for the Kill [VIDEO]

YouTube

A couple of years ago, I was driving out on 554, between US 431 and Windy Hollow, when a hawk or a falcon–some large bird of prey–swooped down and plowed into my windshield. Scared the crap out of me.

As soon as it made contact, it was gone, so I assume it was okay. I didn’t see it lying on the side of the road or anything.

Now, I don’t know if this bird mistook my silver Hyundai for a field mouse or what–they really SHOULD have better vision than that–but there’s no way it didn’t see me.

Well, I did wonder what it had seen and if maybe it WAS going for prey and got thrown off by wind.

Whatever the case may be, I did stumble on a video that biologists produced to show us exactly what a bird of prey–a falcon in this case–does see when it goes in for the kill.

By the way, watch that alpine slide video Chad posted, then watch this.

Challenge that equilibrium!
