Vienna from an eagle's eye view
The siblings Bruno and Fritzi, two golden eagles from Carinthia, started with a camera on their back from a hot-air balloon at a height of 500 m in October 2017. The hot-air balloon took off from the garden of Palais Schwarzenberg. The eagles flew mainly over the 3rd and 1st districts of Vienna, made a few circles and finally returned to their falconer and a treat on the ground.
The recordings were then supplemented in spring 2018 by the French sea eagles Darshan and Victor. The eagle colleagues started from the Danube Tower at a height of 160 m and plunged into the depths watched by many onlookers. Above all, they beautifully captured the evening autumn atmosphere around Danube Island.
All four eagles are already experienced filming specialists. They circled the city and collected spectacular pictures and shots from different angles. Vienna's beauty can only be properly appreciated from a bird's eye view. It was also a special premiere for the birds of prey, as never before have eagles been used with a 360-degree camera over a metropolis of millions.
