The soundtrack & sound effects left me expecting the goat would explode on impact, just like anything does when it goes over a cliff in Hollywood!

I wonder if the eagles have developed a "matador" technique; stand on the edge and let the goats charge at you, flinging themselves off the cliff...

Must say, that's some beautiful flight footage...

I love watching birds of prey. I remember watching a nature program once and seeing a Harpy eagle with a 6-foot wingspan grab a 4-pound sloth from a tree. It came in sideways, literally angled more than 90 degress, to grab the sloth off the tree. This doesn't look like the same clip to me

but it is still impressive. The program I was watching showed it in slow motion and it was just incredible.

Eagles are amazing but Falcons blow my mind.

Good stuff. If I'm ever walking along the side of a cliff and I see an eagle overhead, I'm gunna keep an eye on it.
