Is it a GoPro on an eagle?! How did they do this????

How was this done? Nobody seems to really know. Obviously, it was some sort of camera but Go Pro would seem to be a little large to get an eagle to participate. The author of the video isn’t saying — yet — how he did it, or how he retrieved the video after the eagle had taken its trip around the Mer de Glace glacier in the Haute-Savoie area of the Alps.

Of course, we don’t really know it’s a real eagle, either (although the brief shadow at :56 seems to confirm it is). It could turn out to be Jimmy Kimmel.

Did you know eagles can grab massive amounts of branches?
