Impressive!: Bird Of Prey Drops Its Dinner In Mid-Air, Immediately Swoops Down To Catch It

August 3, 2018

This is a short video of a bird of prey in flight that accidentally drops its carry-on luggage (a rabbit) and immediately swoops down to catch it in mid-air. Now that is some precision flying. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if this bird actually wore a Tom Cruise disguise and starred in Top Gun. "What the hell are you talking about?" No clue, I've been drinking 2-for-1 margaritas at happy hour for a while now. "Need some help?" You can be my wingman any time. "Quoting the movie, nice." But seriously, I could use some help going to talk to those girls over there. "Which ones?" Over there -- by the jukebox. "Those are cardboard Bud Light girl cutouts." No they're not -- one of them winked at me on my way to the bathroom! "You sure about that?" Well I thought so, but I was tripping and falling at the time.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Trish, who agrees this bird is so good it doesn't even need a 5-second rule.

    Just think of the mixed emotions of the rabbit when he was dropped. “I’m falling, I’m going to die. I’m going to die”Then the raptor grabs him and he is thinking “Man that was close, I’m safe now ..... oh wait .... NO, I’M GOING TO REALLY DIE NOW”

    Looks like a marmot, not a rabbit, but pretty cool either way.

    I read "Bird of Prey" and looked at the picture expecting to see a Klingon ship. I notice the tweet says "Raptor" and I'm not sure that would have helped me to realize what I was looking at any quicker.

    I used to follow Nature Is Scary on Twitter, but then they started putting out a ton of spam. Started like 1 out of 10 tweets would be spam, (that had nothing to do with nature) then when it increased to the point where every other tweet was spam, I gave up on them and unfollowed.
