You can file this under “not exactly Boy Scout related…”

However Scouts love to learn about the outdoors and the world around them, and this definately fits into that category!

My mother recently forwarded me this video (reposted on a different site) of an Eagle Owl, approaching a high speed camera, fully extending its talons to grab some type of prey placed just below the camera for the shot. I was very much taken by it that I found the original on YouTube, and viewed it in full screen 1080p!

The Eagle Owl is one of the largest Owls in the world, just slightly smaller than a Golden Eagle. A very impressive predator!
