Un águila de mar robó una cámara de video instalada en el interior de Australia para filmar cocodrilos y voló por 70 millas , creando accidentalmente una extraña película de la vida silvestre hecha por ella misma.

Los guardaparques indígenas asumieron que la cámara con sensor de movimiento que faltaba, había caído en el agua, hasta que apareció varias semanas más tarde, cerca del río Mary en Australia Occidental, a kilómetros de distancia de su lugar original en el río Margaret. Los guardaparques indígenas (rangers) fueron capaces de recuperar de la cámara, tres películas de treinta segundos .

Uno de los rangers, Roneil Skeen , dijo que sabía de casos anteriores en que algunas cámaras habían sido trasladadas por animales, pero nunca se volvieron "cámaras voladoras" .

" Inesperadamente nuestra cámara desapareció , así que pensamos que la habíamos perdido, que cayó en el agua ", dijo a ABC News.

"Fue bastante sorprendente ... Habían tenido cámaras trampa movidas [por animales] , pero no retiradas por el aire.

 Los rangers habían colocado la cámara en un desfiladero en mayo pasado para tratar de capturar imágenes de cocodrilos de agua dulce.

Skeen dijo que los guardaparques estaban "sorprendidos" de que el águila volara con la cámara en un viaje tan largo y creían que era un ave joven porque las águilas mayores la habrían dejado caer.

"Sabíamos que era un águila juvenil, porque las águilas de mar adultas, una vez que obtienen su alimento o sus presas, suelen llevarlas bien arriba en el cielo para luego dejarlas caer", dijo.

"Pero éste todavía estaba aprendiendo, porque tomó la máquina cerca del acantilado y nunca la dejó caer, sólo la depositó y comenzó a picotearla. Una águila adulta se habría elevado con la cámara y la hubiera soltado y seguramente la habría roto".

Los Rangers dijeron que planean poner pernos a las cámaras en el futuro.

Sea eagle creates self-made wildlife film after stealing camera and flying with it for 70 miles

Sea eagle accidentally creates self-made wildlife film after it picks up a video camera set up in the Australian outback to capture footage of crocodiles and carries it 70 mile

  02 Dec 2013 By Jonathan Pearlman, Sydney 

A sea eagle has stolen a video camera set up in the Australian outback to film crocodiles and flown with it for 70 miles, accidentally creating a bizarre, self-made wildlife movie.

Aboriginal rangers assumed the missing motion-sensor camera had fallen into the water until it turned up several weeks later near the Mary River in Western Australia, miles away from its original spot at the Margaret River. Rangers were able to recover three thirty-second films from the camera.

A ranger, Roneil Skeen, said cameras had been moved by animals before but never turned into a “flying camera”.

"Unexpectedly our camera went missing so we thought we had lost it because it fell into the water," he told ABC News.

"It was pretty amazing… They've had camera traps moved [by animals] before, but not taken off, like a flying camera you know?"

Rangers had placed the camera at a gorge last May to try and capture images of fresh-water crocodiles.

Mr Skeen said the rangers were “shocked” that the eagle flew with the camera on its journey and believed it was a young bird because older eagles would have dropped it.

"We knew it was a juvenile eagle because the adult sea eagles, once they get their food or their prey, they usually take it right up into the sky and drop it," he said.

"But this one was still learning because he just took it near the cliff-side and he never dropped [it], he just put it down and started picking at it. An adult one would have flown it right up the top and yeah for sure it would have smashed that camera."

The rangers said they plan to bolt cameras down in future.

The White-bellied Sea Eagle is an opportunistic carnivore and consumes a wide variety of animal prey, including carrion. It often catches a fish by flying low over the water and grasping it in its talons.[12] It prepares for the strike by holding its feet far forward (almost under its chin) and then strikes backwards while simultaneously beating its wings to lift upwards. Generally only one foot is used to seize prey.

The White-bellied Sea Eagle (Haliaeetus leucogaster), also known as the White-breasted Sea Eagle, is a large diurnal bird of prey in the family Accipitridae. Originally described byJohann Friedrich Gmelin in 1788, it is closely related to Sanford's Sea Eagle of the Solomon Islands, and the two are considered a superspecies. A distinctive bird, the adult White-bellied Sea Eagle has a white head, breast, under-wing coverts and tail. The upper parts are grey and the black under-wing flight feathers contrast with the white coverts. The tail is short and wedge-shaped as in all Haliaeetus species. Like many raptors, the female is slightly larger than the male, and can measure up to 90 cm (36 in) long with a wingspan of up to 2.2 m (7 ft), and weigh 4.5 kg (10 lb). Immature birds have brown plumage, which is gradually replaced by white until the age of five or six years. The call is a loud goose-like honking.

Resident from India and Sri Lanka through Southeast Asia to Australia on coasts and major waterways, the White-bellied Sea Eagle breeds and hunts near water, and fish form around half of its diet. Opportunistic, it consumes carrion and a wide variety of animals. Although rated of Least Concern globally, it has declined in parts of southeast Asia such as Thailand, and southeastern Australia. It is ranked as Threatened in Victoria and Vulnerable in South Australia and Tasmania. Human disturbance to its habitat is the main threat, both from direct human activity near nests which impacts on breeding success, and from removal of suitable trees for nesting. The White-bellied Sea Eagle is revered by indigenous people in many parts of Australia, and is the subject of various folk tales throughout its range.

Todo esto es indesligable de la política y por ello esta también se observa. Ecology, social and environmental sustainability, emphasis on conservation of rivers and ecosystems, denounces impact of megaprojects. All this is inseparable from politics, for it, the politics is also evaluated.
