Fly with eagles in these breathtaking bird-cam videos

We can only dream of soaring above the clouds, the way so many birds do. They swoop over our heads, taunting us with the freedom we'll never have. But at least there are tons of bird-cam videos, which give you a birds-eye view of the world below.

Some of these videos come from cameras attached to birds — and others come from cameras that birds have stolen and carried away, while they were still filming.
