Bird Attacking A Camera Equipped RC Airplane

Andrewid1976 has a video on YouTube of a truly stunning aerial battle: between his RC airplane (with a rear-facing camera) and a large crow.

(The crow wins.)

The video is slowed down, but still displays the date and time, down to seconds, so you can get an idea of just how fast it was all happening.

Reasons behind the attack are unclear, and we’re enjoying the speculation:

  • The plane was in its territory.
  • The plane was shiny.
  • The camera was shiny.
  • He wanted to kill it now, before it got big.
  • He was having fun pretending to be a deepcrow.
