Needs more lasers
Those trainers are my definition of the day for “bad ass.”
I’d never let those giant beaks get that close to my eyeballs.
Yarrr! You could use pirate-trained parrots to do the job as well!
Is it time for a remake of The Falcon and the Snowden?

A strong philosophical argument that this is truly the best of all possible worlds.
“These pigeons taste funny.”
Now there’s one who knows enough to keep his distance from dangerous critters!
I am a little surprised that the eagles don’t get hurt. You hear about people performing their version of Un Chien Andalou relatively regularly…
Given the damage a drone rotor can do to a living thing, I disapprove of this.
I was about to post the same. If some drones can cause harm to people with the rotors i can’t see how birds of prey would be any safer from harm (especially from large drones).
I concur. It might be better to train South Polar Skuas to attack the drone operators. They have excellent eyesight and will attack humans who they perceive to be a threat.
There could be a second agenda, a breeding program to produce a subspecies of eagle that knows not to grab the spinning parts.
They are birds of foot - it’s the claws that are most dangerous.
Tame macaws are remarkably safe even though they are capable of crunching whole walnuts with their beaks. There was a pub around here once that had a tame macaw that used to go around removing the tops of fruit juice bottles when it wanted a drink. But I never heard of it harming a human being, though it was capable of biting a finger right off.
We’re gonna need bigger drones.
Take note, shotgun-wielding paranoids. There is an even MORE PATRIOTIC way to take down those things than using firearms!
Put a high voltage capacitor with suitable wiring on the drone. A disposable camera photoflash could do the job, maybe with a bigger cap or more caps in parallel. Zap goes the birdie.
