NATURE "Raptor Force" | Nature's Top Gun | PBS

Duration: 02:06 (Full Program)

A bird's-eye view of the peregrine falcon's stoop, its deadly attack maneuver, captured by a mini camera harnessed to its back. From the NATURE premiere of RAPTOR FORCE, airing on PBS Sunday, February 24 at 8 p.m. (check local listings). The program offers similarly breathtaking in-flight views from the backs of the red-tailed hawk and golden eagle. RAPTOR FORCE also examines the birds' complex anatomy and its influence on military aircraft design. Tony Award-winning actor Liev Schreiber narrates.

NATURE is produced by Thirteen/WNET New York. Major corporate support provided by Canon U.S.A., Inc. and Ford. For more information, visit pbs.org/nature
