Well, check out his link


to see what some day may pass for falconry (I hope not!) Still, it is interesting and may bear fruit for bird borne camera gear we might enjoy using.

Very cool technology, amazing really.
But am I paranoid to wonder if making military spy things look like BOPs might not end up being a really great thing for living BOPs and falconers?
Imagine having homeland security take an interest in you because your bird flew a little too close to something and even worse, was sending out a signal (telem). I'm sure you would get a standard letter of apology from them for the cavity search you received after they blew your bird into a million pieces.
But maybe boredom is letting my imagination get away from me LOL.
