    Looks like a Drone-go species
    CC, Image editing OK.

    And here was me thinking I was going to get a link to a Donald Trump campaign speech. Nothing more droning exists

    Constructive Critique of my photographs is always appreciated

    So it's trained to get white things in the sky. How would they train it to get black drones and red drones and different shaped drones?
    Drones have become a slight problem around fires that need aircraft. Problem with sending an eagle to get the drone is it would go get food escaping the fire first (yep, they do that. Eagles see smoke and turn up.)
    Great looking bird and interesting idea.

    The example mentioned in several interviews include a guy that flew a drone in an area where the trauma helicopter was supposed to land. The question is: is the bird there before the heli?

    Sometimes things don't really go as planned. Check out the second movie on this page => http://nos.nl/artikel/2084071-hoe-vo...roofvogel.html
    The bird is supposed to catch the drone and bring it to the birdhandler. It crashes instead
    Ciao, Joost

    All feedback is highly appreciated!

    You're not looking at it from the birds POV.
