On a PBS special of the Pyrnees they showed a Eagle plucking a kid goat off
a mountain ledge, and gliding down the mountian with the goat in it's talons
to the nest below. So the question is the Eagle picking the 16 pound calf
off the ground, flapping it's wing's to get airborne or is it hang gliding
down with a very heavy calf.
