Eagles, vulture, and an angry hawk on Wyze v3 camera

I had some eagles and a vulture over for seafood last week. The main course, a bass was frozen, but there were no complaints otherwise. Well actually, there were. The eagle found it difficult to do “take-out” since the fish was frozen in place. Also, a hawk got irate when the vulture didn’t share.

Vultures don’t share well …

But do feel free to share the link for the video. The duration is 10 minutes.

Equipment used:

  • Almost al the video* was taken by two Wyze 3 cameras
  • I took the stills and some shaky video near the end using my expensive DSLR.

Some good camera angles and very nice editing job.

I like how they start pecking at the ice starting around 7min9sec

I tried to get it to link to the timestamp, but I guess it doesn’t embed that way like Youtube’s do.

What other cameras were you using besides the Wyze cam?

That was a smart place to put a camera. :slight_smile:

Most of the video was from two Wyze v3 cameras. The zoom and pans were created during post-processing.

I shot the stills and some of the latter shaky video (e.g., starting at 8:48) using a handheld Canon 6D DSLR at a focal length of 300 mm.

Wow, that is really impressive how good the quality was zoomed in!

Thanks! The zooms and pans were added in post-processing using my video editor (Corel VideoStudio Pro) since the source videos from the two Wyze V3 cameras were of fixed focal length and always pointed in the same direction.

You need to find a bunch of road kill, throw it out on the ice and host a banquet for all those great flying creatures. :eagle: :penguin: Very nice video.

That’s a great idea! I am just imagining what the banquet invitation would look like! :slightly_smiling_face:

Seriously I am considering tossing out some more meat as long as the pond stays frozen.

Just don’t send an invitation to the crows or ravens, your banquet would be over in 30 seconds. :grin:
When I had a large almond tree in my front yard 50+ crows would show up and strip it bare of nuts in about 30 min. shells flying every where.

My neighborhood is swarming with flocks of those Crows/Ravens year round, They didn’t even leave for winter.

My cats are smart enough to know not to try to play with those birds too :rofl:

Thanks!
