As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Bird-cam offers an eagle-eyed view of Paris

If you’ve ever wondered what one of the world’s most famous cities looks like from the perspective of a bird, wonder no more. An action camera has been strapped to a rare bird of prey to provide a unique view of the streets and sights of the French capital from on high.

A white-tailed eagle was released from the top of the Eiffel Tower with a Sony HDR-AZ1 strapped to its head to document its flight.

Check out the footage above to experience what the eagle saw as it flew over the Seine and down into the Trocadéro Gardens to meet its handler Jacques Olivier Travers.
