Cameras attached to falcons in Belgium reveal the birds' mid-air hunting techniques.

Full Story:

These point-of-view video clips reveal a few secrets of falcons' hunting success.

The footage, filmed from cameras on the backs and heads of Peregrine and Gyrfalcon/Saker falcon hybrids, shows the birds hunting crows in-flight.

The falcons use a kind of 'motion camouflaging' as they zigzag their flight paths.

Their wide field of vision ensures they don't lose sight of their prey during these high speed, darting maneuvers.

And even though some crows escape, the technique clearly works.
